In the new editor - I can't find the cut / copy then paste options for table rows and columns.
Where are they in the new editor? I'm working in the cloud.
So - I tried that and my feedback is - it works if you know the exact steps to follow. And this feels like a work around and not an improved process.
My PC is Windows 10 and I'm using Chrome.
For Ctrl-X/C/V to work - the sequence is
The specific table tools in the old editor were much more efficient and intuitive. I didn't find this solution because I was selecting the row and doing an RMB.
Hi all, for anyone coming across this thread still unsure of how to copy, cut, and paste table rows in Atlassian products (in lieu of having dedicated buttons for these operations) I've added an update to a related suggestion ticket (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-67594) with a video clarifying how you can achieve the desired outcomes using conventional keyboard shortcuts.
@philoye @Atlassian just assessing moving to Cloud as a relatively happy Confluence Server user, I know I'm not the only one in my organisation who would find this disappointing. I have found and voted for https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-67594 and recommend others might want to do the same
@DavidFingerle thanks for the vote, it may interest you to know that now I've migrated from Server to Cloud I see that the legacy editor is there in Cloud which DOES support the copy/cut/paste buttons I'm used to in Server, and is the default option for all my migrated pages, so I've been sticking with that.
Doesn't work as expected at all. First, you lose and coloration in the cells. Second, you lose the links you've added to apps like Jira. We have weekly reports we copy rows from and into a similarly-formatted overall general report. The data uses extended content, like links to external apps, users, dates, special characters, cell coloration, etc. With the old version you simply "Copy Table Row" (or rows) from the weekly report and "Paste Table Row" (or rows) with no issues and it inserts them cleanly into the destination without danger of overwriting other work.
With the new "solution" when you "Copy " from one and "Paste" to the other, you lose formatting, coloration in cells, link references, etc. and if you need to paste multiple rows other than at the end of the general report, it's even more risky since it doesn't insert - it overwrites!
What a horrible experience. It was already a poor table editor in the previous version but this one is downright missing functionality.
I've been using Confluence since 2006 and I've only seen it stripped and go downhill.
Best way to create a table is go to Google Sheets or Excel and paste it in when done
Yep, it's a complete bag of spanners this new editor.
Column selection is totally non-existent on Safari on the Mac, and even when you force yourself to use Chrome just to edit tables the copy and paste is a random affair... we have got hundreds of tables in Confluence and the new editor makes it nigh on impossible to do simple row/column management.
