When using the old wiki markup, it was very easy to go in and apply the section and column tags around content -- especially beneficial to use after the content is written and then you want to provide some formatting.
When I add a section or column, then I have to copy and paste content in to it.
However, if I remove a column or section, it deletes the content. So, I have to copy the content out first and then delete it. This is very tedious when you have columns within sections.
Is there a better way to do this or will the be addressed to just remove the tags instead of the content, too?
Confluence now supports multi-column layouts without the use of the section or column macros. It's not quite as flexible, but it's much easier to use, more visual, and handles changing layouts more smoothly.

You cannot remove the section or column without having its contents also removed. You have to cut the content out, paste it outside of the section or column macro, and then remove the macro. Much more work than when we could go directly to the markup and just remove the tags.
