How do you copy a table and retain formatting in Confluence?

I'm t trying to copy a table in confluence and it removes all formatting when I paste it. I've tried the suggestion mentioned elsewhere of copying from slightly before and after the table and that doesn't work.

The browser I'm using is Safari

Hi @Uday Bola,

Thank you for contacting us, and welcome to Atlassian Community! It's nice to meet you.

Can you tell me, are you copying the table from a page using the legacy editor, or the new editor? You'll know if it's the new editor because the Publish button will be in the top right-hand corner. 

Please also let me know if the destination page is on the new or legacy editor.

Lastly, could you show me an example of the table you are trying to copy and how it looks when you paste it on the page?

Thank you!
