Before the most recent release (The one that chnaged the UI) I was seemingly able to copy whole rows of data between different tables on different Confluence pages simply by opening them in 2 browser windows and using Ctrl C / Ctrl P.
Since the release it will only copy the data into a single cell on the new page. Is this intentional or a bug of some kind?
It's simple but quite effective functionality for us.
I have the same issue and it is very annoying, and also time consuming to recreate the table.
If I select a row / table and copy-paste it, it is pasted as a unique cell, with all the texts, images mixed one under the other.
If somebody has a solution, please let us know.
Actually I just found out I need to use the inbuilt tools for copying and pasting columns/rows. Normal copy/paste doesn't work. I copied (clicked the copy columns icon from the menu) the columns I need > Inserted a new table with one cell > unformatted 'heading row' > pasted (clicked the paste columns icon from the menu).
If I do command+copy and command+paste, it just pastes the entire content of the table in a single cell, all jumbled.
But I figured it out now, just not an intuitive interface.
The workaround for is to select a row and copy (Ctrl+C) it to another page, then click this row and copy-paste it using toolbar buttons.
Thanks for taking the time to reply once again Andrey. However, unless it's once again my understanding it's almost like I am seeing a completely different behaviour.
I just tried copying and pasting a whole table in the same page and it still just pastes as plain text (No Table format).
I guess we will have to learn to live with it for now!
Thanks for your time though!
A workaround I am using: Open the page in the source editor (when editing, the <> button on the right in the toolbar), copy the needed markup (either the whole <table>...</table> or just the <tr>...<tr> you need), open the target page in source editor too, and paste where needed.
The steps below worked on Windows 10, Word 2016 and Chrome
1. In View mode, copy the table from the source page using Ctrl+C
2. Open Microsoft Word; paste the content from Clipboard into Word document
3. Open the target page in Edit mode; Create a table with the same row and column
4. In Word, click the Plus Sign with Arrow to choose the table; Press Ctrl+C
5. Switch to target page; Place cursor at the first cell of the empty table
6. Press Ctrl+P
Sorry. it may not work
