Scroll Ignore in Tables


Is there a way to apply a scroll ignore macro to entire rows or columns of a table? We use Confluence for our release notes and format them as a table. Some information is internal-only and it would be helpful to have those columns auto-hidden upon export, so our clients don't see erroneous information that isn't relevant to them.

I know of no way to do this. And any kind of workaround is extremely limited in the Cloud version.

You may have to change your release note methodology, as I think you have painted yourself into a corner by using tables. Part of this reason is due to how tables work in HTML. cells are objects wrapped by another object to for rows, that are then wrapped by yet another element to make a table, with columns define positionally and at the highest wrapper. In other words, cells are not objects that can be recombined and separated at will.

That makes complete sense, and that was my gut feeling. Thanks for your response, @Bill Bailey
