Lock Header Row in New Editing Experience

This seems like a simple formatting ask, but I can't seem a way to make it work. Is there anyway to lock the header row of a table in the new editing experience?

Hi @Gina Nace ,

You can freeze first N rows/columns with the help of the Table Filter macro of the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app.

Wrap your table with Table Filter, s
witch to the Table View tab, specify the number of rows in Freeze first N rows  box.


Best regards,

My entire header how is not freezing in view mode - only in edit mode. I must be missing something.

Hello @Gina Nace ,

Please try to set Table height as we have 600рх by default.
It can lead to the behaviour you have in the page view mode.

Best regards,


Does "Freeze first N columns" give a similar behavior to columns?

How can I turn "responsive" behavior off for a specific column(s)?

Hi @ecoea,

Yes, it does.

Read this thread regarding the table width.


It is annoying to see a column with short content on with wide emptiness, and just next to it a column full of text but squeezed vertically spanned into many pages but with a narrow width.

It is good to have a fit-all to auto-sizing feature (i.e. Confluence Cloud), but there should be optional controls given to users on the formatting.
