Confluence - move table rows up or down easily

It would be nice to easily move table rows up or down when editing a wiki page. We often have tables of data and need to reorder them easily. You can cut and paste a table row but it is slow and tedious. Having an easy up and down button would be great.

In the new Confluence use ctrl+shift+X and ctrl+shit+V to cut and paste rows. By that you don't need to select the whole row: just put cursor in some cell of it. Very convenient!

That actually works, thank you.

ctrl+shift+X and ctrl+shit+V doesn't work for me on a Mac. Any ideas?

On a Mac: command-shift-X and command-shift-V

It still not working on Mac... =(

In the new editor:
Select the row, hit Command-X to cut the row, insert new row where you need it, Command-V to paste it into the new row you added.

Can't we just drag and drop like other table editors?

found a great and easy workaround:
1. copy the table
2. paste in google sheets
3. reorder
4. copy and paste back to Confluence 

wow! The future is near! thanks anyway

I raised an improvement request regarding this on your behalf. Kindly watch it and feel free to comment:

hi, you can do this easier by installing source editor . when editing a page, and uou wish to move rows, you can click on <> and edit your table source code to move the rows by cut and pasre of certain row of table. it should be faster ;)
