What changed with the Table edit toolbar?

Did Atlassian remove the Table editing toolbar, or am I just missing where it is?
How do we copy & paste table rows and columns now? Or merge cells?

Hi @Jeff Johnson ! I'm not sure what deployment you have (e.g. server, cloud, DC) but if cloud, the table options are visible once you click inside the table and click this small arrow in a cell.

If you select two cells and click the small arrow again, you'll notice merge cells is available now.

Let me know if this helps!

Yes - that works to merge cells.
How do I copy and paste a row, or a column?

@Jeff Johnson  The way that I do that is insert an empty row/column and then select the row/column copy + paste using keyboard shortcuts into the empty row/column. 

I just remembered about this page as well that you might find useful:

Ooof - manually selecting the whole row, then copying and pasting via the keyboard?
WHY did Atlassian remove the feature where you could, with two mouse clicks, copy & paste an entire row or column?

We understand this might be not the most ideal for you and it's something being tracked on this feature request:

This is a significant and time wasting downgrade in performance.

What took one click to select the whole row and one click to [cut|insert above|insert below|...] is now click on the first cell in the row, wait for the arrow to show up, click on the arrow, look for "insert above" (hint: no longer an option), click on the row above, wait for the arrow, click on the arrow, click "insert below". 

Please just make the toolbar an option.
