I am having trouble copying and pasting tables in Confluence (cloud version)

I am unable to copy and paste tables in confluence. I just end up pasting plain text. It was working last night.

I have tried it with Chrome and IE and both only paste text without the table.

I have tried copying text before and after the table and that doesn't do anything.

I tried going into another confluence document that I know didn't have issues and tried it and have the same issue.

Was there an upgrade that broke something?

Hi Benjamin, Did you test copy and paste using a different browser?

This widget could not be displayed.

There wasn't any major update as far as we aware of.

As Paula mentioned, maybe you can try the copy operation with another browser, but I was able to successfully copy the table and its content using Chrome.

What I'm doing is creating the table using the "Insert table" toolbar menu located at the top of Confluence editor, then I save the page with this table and when viewing the page I simply select all of its content, copy, then paste in another page. It works.

So, please let us know how you are approaching this operation and we can try to help you further.
