How do I paste a markdown table into a jira comment or description?

in the old interface, I could paste a markdown table into the editor and have it convert to a table.  In the new design I just get a blob of text, is this no longer supported or am I doing something wrong?

Hello @Mike Robinson,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

On the old view, the editor was Wiki Markup, so the table format was different and it won’t work on the new view that uses Markdown.

The Markdown syntax for tables is the one below:

| Syntax      | Description |

| ----------- | ----------- |

| Header      | Title       |

| Paragraph   | Text        |

You can add tables directly using the editor, but in case you need to use a template, you can use the Table Generator below that is suggested on the Markdown documentation:

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.

Kind regards,
