Copy and Paste table cell contents

Is there a way to copy and paste from multiple table cells into multiple table cells at the same time that would not be to copy and paste either an entire table, entire row, or entire column?

I don't see an option for doing this here:

||Windows||Action||Mac OS X||
|Ctrl+Shift+c|Copy the current table row, or the selected rows.|Cmd+Shift+c|
|Ctrl+Shift+i|Insert a table. (Opens the Insert Table dialog.)|Cmd+Shift+i|
|Ctrl+Shift+v|Paste the table rows from your clipboard, placing them above the current row.|Cmd+Shift+v|
|Ctrl+Shift+x|Cut the current table row, or the selected rows.|Cmd+Shift+x|
|Alt+Up Arrow|Add a row above the current row.|Alt+Up Arrow|
|Alt+Down Arrow|Add a row below the current row.|Alt+Down Arrow|

When copying content in multiple cells now using Ctrl+c and pasting into multiple highlighted cells using Ctrl+v now, all of the contents are pasted into the first highlighted cell only.

Thanks, Gonchik. I appreciate your taking the time to provide an answer to my question.

I am specifically asking about copying multiple table cells (but not an entire row or column) and pasting them as multiple table cells rather than pasting the contents into one table cell only. 

Does it make a difference if the table was added using markup or the table macro?
