Hi @Nicolette-Davids

I am assuming you are using Confluence New Editor. Once you select the cells you want to merge, you see an arrow on the top right corner of your selection, which when clicked provides various actions you can perform on the cells. Here is an image to help you -


If you are using the old editor, you see the merge option in the table options ribbon right below the toolbar. I am assuming, you must be knowing that already.

Let me know, if you still can't see the option to merge cells in your table.



Thank you Sireesha, that was the trick! 

I tried to do the same in JIRA Cloud using the new editor. The option "merge cells" does not show up when I select mulitple cells. 

Is the merge feature currently not availabe in JIRA?

Merge Cells is not visible for me either.  I'm using the new editorScreen Shot 2021-07-08 at 1.09.53 PM.png
