Pasting a table into Confluence

Feels like the paste behavior in confluence has changed?

Believe I used to be able to paste a "wikimarkup" table into a page and it was converted into a "normal" table?

Now when I paste:

|| Summary || Description||
| hello | example |
| hello 2 | example 2 | + return

I get :

Only the last line is "converted"!


If I attempt using the markdown plugin I get a table that looks OK, but if I try to create multiple JIRA issues  - the issues are created, but they are not "added" to the page.


The same thing happens if I insert the table as a html text file in a "html" macro.

If I paste a table from excel I get it "converted" into a "normal" table, but this is due to embedded meta data in the paste data from excel.

When I create "html" pages and upload them via the REST API, the html tables are "converted" into a "normal" tables.

When pasting data inside a "{markdown textdata}" macro I get some strange behavior:


it is converted into:


So the {Wiki Markup} exists in the backend? And is hidden from users somehow?

If I edit the Wiki Markup to 


I get a table, it is not "converted" and also fails when creating jira issues from table.


Is there some way of pasting a table(preferably from text) into a confluence page so that it is converted into a "normal" table? There used to be a {wiki markup} macro to be used for this...
