How do I copy a table column from old table editor into new table editor?

I want to be able to copy table columns from a page that is using the old editor into a table that is on a new page that is using the new editor. The old editor had copy/paste column buttons that could be used, but I don't see this in the new editor. How do I go about doing this?

Hi @Jake Warren , You can copy and paste the entire table by hovering the mouse over the entire table and select all the contents of the table. Then just paste it to the new editor. 

 

If you need to do something more granular, you may want to check out this link where another member had a similar question:

 

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-do-I-copy-and-paste-a-table-from-an-older-page-to-a-new-page/qaq-p/1241004

Doing this just pastes the entire content of the table from the old editor page into a single cell in a table in the new editor (when pasting it into a table, if pasting it on the page, it just pastes the entire content on the page with no table).

HI @Jake Warren ,

 

There's a couple options to check.

1. Create the same size table in the new editor, then select the entire table in the new editor and paste.

2. Copy out into an excel spreadsheet and then copy back in. 

 

Currently, there's a ticket raise to bring back the copy and paste buttons:
