Hello @mani !
As I understand, copying and pasting a table from Confluence inside Confluence renders the table order incorrectly.
With this in mind, I tried combinations of the following options:
- Copy the whole original table from View Mode via mouse drag
- Copy the whole original table contents via CMD+A/CTRL+A
- Copy the whole original table via mouse drag
- Paste the content in a new page with no table
- Paste the content inside a new empty table
This is the original table:
With all the tests above, the only outlier was “Copy the whole original table from View Mode via mouse drag” + “Paste the content in a new page with no table”. This was the result:
Having these results at hand, I would like to ask you:
- What is the exact workflow that results the incorrectly sorted table?
- Has this worked at some point in the past?
- Are you able to sort the table while viewing them?
Here is a detail to keep in mind:
When viewing a table on a page, you can sort it by clicking the sort icons in the header row. Your sorting choices don’t impact what other people see.
Which means that the original order (the one with which the table was created) is the real one. Here is our full documentation on page formatting:
