Link to cell in table

I miss the possibility to link to specific cell or row in a table.

Hi @Peter Mannerhagen 

did you check out the possibility using Macro Anchor?

This should solve the problem :)

Ok forget that - I missed that you are using Cloud....

Is there a solution to my problem for Cloud?

When will Cloud be abel to use Macro Anchor?

Have the same issue, can't seem to find a way to link to a specific table cell on Cloud Confluence.

Hi @user1600929636653 and @Peter Mannerhagen 

as in documentation roadmap mentioned anchor macro was removed - a workaround that works fine (and is added) is link to headings instead in confluence cloud
-> Scroll down until you come to Link to a heading on a page or another page

Hope this works as good for as it works for me 😊

Hi, @Fabienne Gerhard 

Link to headings works fine when it is an actual heading on the page, and I've successfully linked content within tables to headings on other pages. But for content within a table cell, setting the text into a heading doesn't generate the same copy-able link as normal headings have...

having the exact same issue :-( would be great to hear a solution

I also really miss this feature!

However it doesn't seem to be possible in the new editor right now. The documentation for Confluence Cloud states in (date: 2020-09)

Linking to text formatted as headings in tables isn’t currently possible in the new editor.
