I am trying to align an image directly beside a Table

I am writing up a confluence page for work on a Project I worked on and would like to use some imagery to help break up the page.

I have a table which is only going about 2 thirds across the page and I want to place an image to the right of the table directly in line with the table however I cannot get it to do this.

Inserting the image and then trying to move it results in the image slotting in above or below the table.

I then tried inserting a one row one column table to align directly beside the original table to put the image in there but that did not work either.

Any help would be most appreciated

You can also use the sections and column - macros to define your own page layout.

Put a section macro on your page and into that section, put as many column macros as you want. You can set the size of each column separately. But I think, they have to have anything inside them to be sized the way you want them.

Look here for more information:

You should use the Page Layout --> Sections function, that might work for you.

Does not work. It may have had there been an option for 1 column with a sidebar. But the closest is 2 Columns with a sidebar.

Surely it can't be this difficult to align an image to the right of a table ?

I'm not sure if this helps you, but I think the layout called "two columns with sidebar" is really one wide column and one narrower column.

Hi Mark,

the app "Content Formatting for Confluence"  provides a macro called "align". Using that macro, you can align your image to the right of the page.

The app is not for free and there also may be others in the marketplace, but we are using this one and are satisfied with the app.

Thanks Thomas - Inserting macros worked for me. Its still a bit clunky but its as good as its going to get I suppose.
