Two possible solutions:

  • Try different browsers. There are differences in how Chrome and Firefox work with tables in Confluence
  • Install the free source editor plugin. Then you can edit the page source, and copy the XHTML for the table. Then you can paste it into the source view of the destination page.

FYI: I am a cloud user

Okay, so it does work in Firefox, but my company uses Chrome, should we file a bug?  I need this to work in Chrome, it worked in Chrome right up until the latest update.

Hi Corinna,

In this page, you'll see how to work with tables depending on your Confluence version smile

Another one already asked the same thing, the answer could probably help you too smile


Best regards, Damien.

Oh, yeah, that's true. What a problem...

Try to change shortcuts?

Use Mozilla Firefox, highlight the table, paste the table
