      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Cloud. Using Confluence Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Summary

      Pasting markup directly into the Confluence Cloud text editor does not work as expected.

      Steps to replicate

      1. Create a new page (using old editor)
      2. Paste table markup

      Expected results

      The markup is correctly converted to tables

      Actual results

      The markup is not recognized.

      Workaround

      Manually insert the markup when needed

      Notes

      If we place the cursor right at the end of each column or row, pressing return converts the markup. However, it does not convert all pasted content, only what was directly behind the cursor.
      It is not possible to join the broken parts of the table.

       

       

      Previous text

      Hello. We are using Confluence 5.9.10. We have an example page that is built of sections, screenshot of this page is attached. You cannot copy and paste tables from section to section. Multi-line tables pasted in from wiki markup do not convert properly (middle section). You cannot join split tables (right section). These were not problems when we could edit wiki markup. We'd simply go into the markup, edit it, fix what was formatted incorrectly, done. I would appreciate if you tried duplicating what we're trying to do and either make a feature request to allow more versatility, or suggest work arounds if any. Thanks.
