Table borders disappearing

Hi -- I have a large table used as a glossary, and some of the rows' borders are missing. They are still separate rows, but the line between them is gone (randomly, about every tenth one). I've tried clearing the formatting and starting over, but it still doesn't work. The 'unmerge' button is lightened/unavailable, otherwise I'd think that would be the next good thing to try. Does anyone have any ideas/advice? Thanks!

Hmm - that does not sound good.

Maybe a bug. (log to

One thing you could do, which is a bit of a hacky work-around is to create your table like you would in old wiki-markup.

For example, in TextPad, create this with your content:

|| Header ||  Header  || Header  || Header ||  Header  ||  

| Text | Text | Text | Text | Text | 

| Text | Text | Text | Text | Text | 

| Text | Text | Text | Text | Text | 

| Text | Text | Text | Text | Text |

To insert it:

  1. Select Edit (page)
  2. Insert option in upper menu
  3. Select { } wiki markup
  4. Copy in the table from TextPad

Curious if it fixes the problem (then you could span cells as needed once the basic table is right). Admittedly - this seems like a tough one.

Not sure if this is a politically correct suggestion - but thats likely frustrating so wonder if this would work.

Good luck,


If you go into the source editor for the page (the button with this symbol: <>) you can find some weird HTML in the table. In my case it was an extraneous <colgroup></colgroup> element. Once I deleted this element and applied the change my borders reappeared. 

Thanks - this worked for me

Thanks Jeff, nice catch !

This fix saved me today!  Thank you Jeff!

For me, I change the magnification level (ctl-+ or ctl–) of the browser and the borders appear/disappear. Annoying...

I have experienced the same thing..

Unfortunately, the above no longer works (Atlassian Assassinated the ability to add Wiki Markup code)

And now they have done themselves proud... The table border is sooooo close to the same color of the background that it is nearly invisible(and you can not change it)
