      Description

      Summary

      When using the rich text editor with tables, the copy/paste is not user friendly enough. Copy pasting several columns/rows and pasting it in a table will create a smaller table. For example

      1. Use Visual mode
      2. Copy the following table
        a b
        c d
      3. Paste it in the X in the below table
        1 2 3 X  
        6 7 8    
      4. Expecting to see
        1 2 3 a b
        6 7 8 c d
      5. When you paste it though, you will see the following
      6. However, once you save it, you will get the following instead
        1 2 3
        a b
        c d
         
        6 7 8    

      Suggestion

      Improve the copy/paste abilities in rich text editor visual mode
