Hi Cynthia,

The normal copy and paste shortcuts work, like command + c. Please refer to Working with Tables for further information.

Ctrl+C does not work and the page you link to does not exist.

The only way that works so far is to add dummy text above and below the table, copy the text and the table, paste, then remove the dummy text from around the pasted table.

Do you want the tables to stay in sync with each other? If so, then check out the excerpt and include excerpt macros. If not then copy and paste works.

I've found that it's much easier to select the table for copying when the source page is in published or preview mode than when it is in edit mode. In edit mode, it behaves really strangely when you drag the mouse over it (not highlighting the selection, etc.). Hope this helps!
