How to sort tables in Confluence

The reference here says we can sort column in a table in confluence using the top arrow on the column header.  Yet, I do not have that option in my table, any explanation why?

Thank you,

Sorting is visible after you save the page and it is not in edit mode.  If you are editing the page the sorting option will not be available.  You also need to make sure that you have column headers that you can sort on.  If you do nave a header column you will need to add it.

Hello, I confirm that when viewing the page (not in edit mode) and making sur I have a header row in my table, the little sorting arrow still don't appear.  Any idea why?

Did you hover over the headers so the sorting arrows appear?

Yes.  I see the arrows on other tables in the same confluence space.  But in this one specefic they don't appear, perhaps because of some lines below that are merged ?

I tested on my instance an if lines are merged then sorting is not available.
