Unfortunately, no. It is not simply a case of the "editor" changing. Atlassian is replacing the legacy XMHTL Confluence Storage Format with the new JSON-based Atlassian Document Format, which will be used across all its different products. You actually want Atlassian to provide better feature parity between the old and new.
Thank You, James... Well, they have not supplied a great switch over, as the new editor truly is missing a great deal of control and when it comes to adding a table, they go out of control and all tables now have scroll bars and you can make the table smaller to fit the box you put them in... Not sure what in the world they did there.
This new editor is NOT a great improvement, it's a very large step backward.
You are not the only one complaining about the switch in editors. You can search the community and find many people making the same requests/complaints that you are. This goes back at least five years. :)
We've been waiting for improvements, but it just seems to be going in the wrong direction.
I share this same Table editing issue.

interfaces changes i appreciate will have to change every few years.
RE: loss of function.
Tables were able to become lists of Jira tasks using the legacy editor macro. Now this function is gone.
Loss of function is a bug. We cant work around bugs. Our team is agile but we need to reserve our trouble shooting for our companies challenges not Atlassian . We cant be learning Atlassian multiple times a year.
Is there a way to gate the updates and release every few years? that way we can train every few years.
I really miss having the article be as wide as my monitor.

and the new UI is so slow to render. Its like there are to many HTML elements, and the browser is struggeling to give a snappy and smooth experience.
I have no idea if this is possible elsewhere but at least in our setup as a workaround I can add "?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels" to my issue URL to access the legacy editor, like this:
