Headings of table shifts when page published

When I have some of the cells merged in the header section, the edit page and preview show the table headings correctly. But when published the headings of the cells that are not merged get shifted to the leftmost side of the table.

Preview of the table before publishing:

Hi @Shah Shrey Amiya _Embedded_ 

I can't reproduce this, which gets me these questions:

  • Which confluence version do you have?
  • What is your exact procedure to create this table?
  • Can you reproduce this on every page?

This screenshot is from the view mode from a published page


Regards, Dominic

Hello @Dominic Lagger , 

We are currently using 7.10.2. 

Steps to reproduce the issue: 

  • Create a table and enter the headings. 
  • Add another row and make it a heading row. 
  • Merge the cells which do not have secondary headings.  
  • Preview and Publish the page. 

I have tried creating a page in different spaces. But this issue is there with every page.

Okay, thanks for sharing the information. 

Regards, Dominic

I don't see any such options available. I have talked to my internal team and have raised a ticket with Atlassian. 
Thank you for your support
