Table toolbar missing

When I edit a page and insert a table I don't get the "table toolbar" that the documentation talks about. Here is what I see:

This happens in Microsoft Edge, Chrome and Firefox, on two different computers with two different users in the same wiki. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Right clicking doesn't produce the required controls.  Left clicking within a cell gives a menu that includes inserting rows and columns.  The shortcut for adding a row is listed and on my mac is <ctrl><alt><down arrow>.

Same case here. stumbled over adding a row by Tab...Tab...etc. Not at all intuitive.

Lets go back to the prior UI with a toolbar that makes sense.

Hi @marisvali 

can you try selecting the table/column and see if the toolbar appears. It should be a new row underneath the main toolbar.

I've tried selecting the table or rows or columns individually, the toolbar does not appear.

Was a resolution found for this? I am having the the same issue and can not see the table toolbar (tried on multiple browsers with multiple users).

I'm having the same issue here, and it's quite annoying, when is this going to be resolved?

So i heard back from Atlassian support on this. Turns out the toolbar has been removed in newer versions of Cloud Confluence; along with the ability to set table column widths. The full set of available options now exists in the "Table Options" menu that appears at the bottom of the table when selected.

I really don't like this. I am using confluence a lot, and the old way of handling tables is WAY better than the new one, the new implementation is REALLY annoying. Wish Atlassian would give us the old one back.

When creating the page with the table, don't choose the 'new editing' fancy option. Choose just blank page. This "fixed" it for me. The new table was really smoother to use but the toolbar didn't show up and I needed the 'fill cell color' option. shucks.

Later edit: you can find cell background color on each cell top right! back to smooth new features

When I select the "Table Options" I only have the option to select a header row/column - no way to delete columns, fill in text, or anything. This is completely unusable. Any idea how to expand table options?

yep, exactly same here... the table options don't have the option to make columns "responsive" 

i did select "blank page" and same result. 

i really dont like this new ui and i wish there is a option to turn this off. this is crazy

When I add a table I only have the following cell options. atlassian-cloud-table.png

I have no table options available at the bottom of the table when the table is selected (as stated above). So frustrating not being able to manage column width. How do you get access to table options? The only thing at the bottom of my table is the Delete icon.

Does this mean there is no longer a way to cut and paste rows or columns?  I need to reorder some rows and have spent more than 20 minutes looking for a answer.  This thread seems to suggest that feature was there but removed?  Talk about Yak Shaving.

What project did you transition or start on Confluence with the shift to remote work?

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
