Copy paste I think will be the easiest method. Highlight the text inside the upper left cell and lower right cell of the content you want split and copy/cut the content. Click outside the table and hit "return". You can either paste the content to create a table with the content inside or insert another table from scratch, click in the first cell, and paste.

Hi Sean,

thanks for your post.

I tried that but without the possibility of cutting. Copy /Paste works, but not Cut / Paste.

But that is trivial anyway.

I hope Atlassian will add this functionality some days ;-)

Thanks a lot.

Michael
