I have a Confluence table and I would like to delete the content of a handful of cells. I can enter the Edit mode, then I can select the cells I would like to clear, but when I press the delete key, entire rows are being deleted instead of the selected cells.
Lets say I have a 5x5 table and I select cells B4, B5, C4, C5. I see those cells being highlighted, but when I release the mouse to look at my selection, I see that Firefox is also selecting the text in cells B4, B5, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5... So when I press the delete key, all cells in row C get deleted.
I am running Confluence 5.6.3 on Firefox 25.0.
Hello Eric, this is reproduceable in other browsers as well, and was documented a while ago in this issue ticket. I agree that there should be a better manner to remove contents from a table, turns out it appears not have a straight forward resolution at this time - only the workaround of removing each cell content with double click + delete.
an easier way is to use the merge cells function to merge all cells in a select column or row, then just highlight text all in one cell hit delete, then split cells again.
However in 2018 i expect a paid for text content editor like Confluence to have such basic functionality. The only value in Confluence is that it links easier with other Atlassian Products with a little integration. However using Google sheets and linking to a JIRA ticket for example is a better alternative for me at this point. Depends on how deeply you use Confluence i suppose.
