    Description

      Final Status Update - 29 November 2023

      Hey all 👋

      Thanks for your ongoing feedback. I wanted to provide a few updates on some of the topics raised recently:

      • Providing a full-width responsive option - in light of the continued feedback on this topic we plan to bring forward work to explore enhancements to full-width tables and table behaviour across different viewport sizes. We will be using the suggestion ticket here in the first instance to communicate and provide updates.
      • Creating tables in full-width pages - we hear your feedback in this space - thank you. As a result, we are exploring making changes which would make tables behave as follows in full-width pages;
      1. Insert tables at full-width / 1800px by default.
      1. Insert tables left aligned by default (please note the suggestion ticket for providing more table alignment options here)

      We will be leaving this JAC ticket here open to track progress on these changes.

      • Resizing of nested tables (for already allowed nesting scenarios) - we understand your desire for this to be enabled, and it’s on our list - just not yet. To track this work I’ve created another suggestion ticket here, please give it a follow if this is of interest to you.

       

      With the rollout of this change now completed we will also be closing this ticket.

      As per the above there are some specific follow ons which we will be tracking using the relevant JAC ticket linked above.

      Cheers,

      Rory

       

      Status Update 18th September 2023

      Hey tables community,

      Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent research study, we really appreciate you taking the time to speak to us!

      I'm excited to share that we plan to start progressively rolling out this feature over the coming weeks. The new solution will allow you to resize tables in both fixed-width and full-width Confluence pages.

      As the feature becomes available to you, we would love to know what you think. Please feel free to comment on this ticket or alternatively to book time to speak with us directly using the Calendly link below.

      Cheers,

      Summary

      In the new editing improvements, it's possible to display a table at full width, wide or center, but it's not possible to set your own table width. You can change the width of individual columns within the width of the table, but not alter the table width itself.

      Suggestion

      Provide the ability for users to set their own table widths in the editor.
