How do I keep focus at the position I pasted in a table?

I have a table that is over a screen in height.  Pasting in a status macro into a cell pushes focus all the way to the bottom - leaving me unsure if the paste worked, and making it really hard to work my way down the table.

Hello David, I have performed a test with a similar scenario, and if I understood - I could not reproduce the issue using Confluence 5.7. Please add details to this thread so we can check if something was missed.

Hey David,

Mind sharing with us if this is reproducible in all supported browsers (IE/FF/Chrome)?

If it is then send us a screenshot of how the page is displaying after you add the macro.

Thanks and Regards,

First thing that makes this problem "interesting" is that I think its limited to long tables inside comments.  The 

||Text style comment|| Status Pasting Column || Another Column for more status|| A checkbox or not column || ...||
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |
|  | | X |  |
| Text | One more status | zero or more status pastes | (/) |

I just reproduced in the comment by trying to paste a status in the second to bottom row (at the X, which was blank.  After the paste, it focussed about 2/3 of the way up the table.  My table is about two natural screens high.

 

Hope that makes sense
