Table borders missing

Hi,

on a confluence page I want to use the table macro.

But some of the table borders are missing. Look s like a bug. It happen s every time I want to use the table macro. And it s also happening with 30 rows, that there are more row s without a border.

I also tried it with the markup... but same thing:

|| Header ||  Header  || 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 |  Text |
| Text | Text | Text | Text | Text |  Text |  Text |

As you can see there are two rows without a border, but they are two rows.

Conlfuence Version 5.4.4

I've run into this now that the wiki editor is gone (Confluence 5.5.3). I frequently copy tables from Google Docs into Confluence. In Edit mode, I can see the borders, but most of them go missing once I view the actual page. The only border I can see is above the first cell. When inspecting the HTML source, thead is after the tbody which is odd.

I've been using the following workaround:

  1. Paste your table from Google Docs into Confluence
  2. Create a second table using the Confluence WYSIWYG editor. Make sure the new table has the same number of columns as the one you're bringing over from Google Docs. A couple rows should be sufficient.
  3. Copy all of the content from the initial table you pasted.
  4. Paste that content into the newer table.
  5. Get rid of the table you initially copied over.

I've found that this allows all of the borders to show up once the wiki page is rendered.

Thanks for the workaround! I had the same use case as you described.

Thanks!  Had the same issue and this worked for me also :)

Hello Ats,
