I'm trying to create a table and I need to merge cells from 3 rows on top of eachother but apparently the built-in editor in confluence won't let me..
What should I do ?
Thank you for your answer..
My solution (using Firefox): Before merging, ensure ONLY the inside of the cells is highlighted as opposed to having both the inside AND the borders highlighted.
Assume you want to merge all cells in a row.
1. Click inside the leftmost cell and drag to the rightmost (don't release the mouse button yet).
The cells and the cells' borders highlight in blue.
2. Continue dragging to the right until the mouse pointer is outside of the table borders (don't release the mouse button yet).
3. Drag back to the rightmost cell.
4. Release the mouse button.
Voila! The cells are highlighted without the borders being so! Now you can merge.
I'm testing this out in 6.7.0 and compared to 6.4.0, the merge doesn't seem to work. I've reported this as a bug:
I've included some animated GIFs in that bug. Can you have a look at them and let me know if that's what you're trying to do?
If not, can you describe what isn't working for you and I can test that out as well?
Either way, please let me know your Confluence version so I can include this.
Thank you for reporting it and it is exactly the same thing I was trying to do.
I had to resort to excel and exporting that to pdf and inserting that pdf..
Not the most elegant solution but at least it works better..
I have no idea where to find the current version number of confluence but as we bought it for like a week ago it's probably the latest version..
No worries! Is the blue a bright blue (like at the top of this page), or more of a navy blue? If it's bright blue then you're probably testing with either 6.7.0 or 6.7.1, which matches what I reported in the bug. You can check the bottom of the pages, though, it should say the version.
If it's not 6.7.0 then I can update the bug with your version as well.
To merge I used to just drag the mouse across the cells I wanted then do the merge. Now I must triple click the content in one cell then shift-arrow <direction> to the cell(s) I want to merge.
So depending on how you select the cells to merge, it's not only broken in 6.7 but 6.14.2 as well.
I quick fix I have found with Firefox is to actually click and hold on the first cell , move your cursor to the right cell so that it select both cells, move your cursor to the left so that it only select the first cell, move it to the right so that it select both cells again and then lift your finger. What it does is that it creates another type of selection that can now be merged.
In 6.15.3, I've just discovered a bug with merging table cells in IE. Previously I could enter the details in one cell, then select the cells I would like to merge with, click merge, then that data would span across the cells. I tried the triple-click +shift-arrow and it didn't work for me. I tried deleting the details in the cell, and it worked. It seems I can only merge blank cells. I've reported this through Support.
