Copy & paste doesn´t work with tables in Confluence 4.2.11

I got user reports that they can t copy and paste tables inside a page during editing.

Create a heading, a textblock and a table. Then copy all with copy&paste in the same page. The heading, text and table content was shown as a textblock. see picture

By my self I can t reproduce this but I have seen it by the users. It affects all browsers.

Hi Thomas,

It might be related to some third party plugins, that blocked the rich text format to be copied to the clipboard. Please enable Plugin Safe mode and check whether it works. You can achieve this by navigating to Confluence Admin >> Plugins >> Enable Safe mode.


I have tested it in IE 9 (Win7), Firefox 13, and Chrome 21 but I'm not able to reproduce it. Which browser are you using?
