This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Tables
Sticky table headings in view mode
In some instances table header rows will stick to the top when you're viewing a page, making those really long tables easier to read. There are a few exceptions though. Table headers aren't sticky when:
- the space is using the documentation theme
- your table is inside a page layout (columns and sections)
- your table has no header row or there are cells in the top row that aren't marked as headers
- your table has a header column, instead of a header row, and scrolls horizontally
- your table is inside another table, or has another table inside, with its own header row
- your table only has one column.
Atlassian, are there any plans to change these constraints?
Additional areas outside of view mode where stickiness would be desirable!
+1 for sticky table headers in editing mode
If you need sticky headers for viewing the table, you very likely also need it for editing!
I have a hard time knowing where to write what content, if I don't have the header!
My workaround: Below the editing window I open a second instance in view mode with the same width, but limited height, so that I know which column is which.
We use the documentation theme so no sticky headers
That said the current documentation does not mention it it as a constraint:DocJan17.png
I updated the space theme to "Global Look and Feel" and I still have no sticky table headers
