I used to be able to create a table within a table using the button on top in edit mode. Now, it's grayed out when I'm within a table, and when I hover over the icon, I'm told that nested tables are unsupported.
Is this an issue with the new version of Confluence? Is there a way to get around this? The document already contains nested tables and I would like to keep the format uniform, and copying and pasting does not work.
Atlassian recently announced that they are removing that ability. Personally, I think it is a terrible decision as they are assuming that they know best how you should write your documentation. The reason they gave was so that your documentation could be more readable.
I can't believe this functionality has been removed without warning! My company is highly dependent on this functionality for documenting requirements. I tried copy and pasting a previously created row and the paste functionality did not work as expected. This is a major issue from our point of view.
I believe you may be using the new Confluence Cloud version, correct? If so, Nested Tables are no longer supported here.
I've created a ticket in our reporting system so that the team can let us know whether or not it will be brought back, but it may be unlikely.
Thanks for submitting the ticket. I have added my comments to it. This change will make creating my API documentation on Confluence very difficult.
The only thing I have found as a work around is to copy an existing nested table and just change the text. It is a lot of work, but in a pinch it can work.
