Confluence 6.4.2 - Tables - cannot use Tab key to move to next cell?

Cannot use the 'tab' key to move to the next cell.  One must click into it.

If you are unaware of this, press Tab, and start typing, it looks like nothing happens.

Click Update. Go back into the page.

The cell where the cursor last was prior to the 'tab' action is all mucked up (contains what you thought you typed after the 'tab' action, but it didn't show).

Is this a bug, or annoying function?

This widget could not be displayed.

Anyone?  This is pretty annoying and seems like there should be a workaround, but I can't find it - the tab key always indents, doesn't move to the next cell as expected.

Hi Andrew,

I'm testing this in the latest Confluence, but I am able to move between cells using tab.

Can you confirm if you're also using Confluence 6.4.2 or are you using a more recent release? What browser are you testing this in?



Hi @Shannon Spaniol and @Andrew Cohen,

We are on 6.6.5, and I just tried this again.

No problems now! Our latest update in June seems to have fixed it. 

@Dia Harrill, Thank you for the confirmation! Glad to hear. :)
