Why are Confluence table grid lines randomly not showing up?

Grid lines on Confluence tables are randomly not showing up (within a single table).




When I delete or copy or paste the row, sometimes the missing gridlines stay with that row, and other times that particular data will get its gridlines back but they will go missing from some other row. What is the deal?  Thanks for any help!

Try increasing the text size showing in your browser (Zoom in).

Hi Mallory,

Try to use buttons at the top of the editor to add/delete table rows/columns and then copy/paste text cell by cell. I don't think copy/pasting the whole row or column is possible

The table editor buttons look like the below picture

Thanks! We have tried copying and pasting the rows and cutting the rows, which hasn't helped, and modifying screen settings. It appears to be happening to everyone when viewing tables on Confluence pages.

Everyone using our instance using a variety of devices -laptops, mobile, big monitors, etc.

Are you guys using the Internet Explorer? I can't remember when, but I did encounter this behavior before (in JIRA) and it was related to an IE bug.



Sometimes it can occur in Chrome too
