How can one freeze panes in a Confluence table for readability?

My intent is to collect data from a number of individuals where the Confluence table has several columns and several rows.  For readability and updatability, I would like to freeze panes on the table (specific row and column).

Confluence tables have sticky headers by default, but there are not sticky columns.

Table Filter macro has Feeze first N rows/columns option. You can play with this option on the demo site.

Hello, for Legacy editor is there any solution to freeze the first row of a table?

Hi @Monaz Yasoubi ,

As it was mentioned before, the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app and its Table Filter macro allow you to freeze one or several first rows/columns to make your tables readable.

Hello , thanks for response. But for legacy editor I did not find Table filter. It is available for new editor version. 

Maybe you just don't have the app installed for your Confluence - ask your Confluence administrator to check.

I say this as someone on server 6.9.0, with zero third-party macros installed. You can "freeze" rows for when an end user is scrolling a table, by designating them as header rows.

I'm not aware of any way to freeze columns in Confluence, but see above re: zero macros. Perhaps a third party has come up with something?
