Pasting ONE item into multiple rows/columns

Can one select multiple rows in a column (or vie versa) and paste once into ALL the rows?  

Example.  I have a macro (in this case the Handy Status Macro) and I want to put in in all the rows under the column status.  Do I really have to paste it into each row?!?!?!  really sucks when i have 500+ rows....


Doing this in Confluence 6.5 DataCenter.

That's a good idea. I tested to see if I could find a workaround, like in Excel when you pull the corner of the cell down and it copies the value. I was not able to find such a capability in Confluence, so I opened a suggestion for our development team: As an user, would like to update multiple cells simultaneously in a table

The suggestion is public, so you can vote, comment and watch it to make your voice heard and see if/when the development team implements it.

Oh and tell Morgan "Hi!" for me.

If it's the Morgan who works in support in the Austin office, I sure will! :)

That would be Nice .  LOL

I love Confluence, but I fail to win people over to using the app due to it's sheet limitations compared to XLS.

Atlassian really need to collaborate with Office Devs or at least bring some rich table features to take it to the next level IMHO.

Like # people like this

Agree. This would save a lot of time

Agreed, using tables in Confluence eats time.

Yes, please implement this feature as soon as possible. I will use it regularly.
