Add keyboard shortcuts for tables

New member | Level 1

I would find it highly useful, if there were keyboard shortcuts for tables in paper. Having to use the mouse to add a table feels cumbersome. 

E.g. in MS Onenote you can simply hit "Tab" to start a table at the current position, use "Strg+Enter" to add a new row and "Alt+Enter" to add a linebreak within the current cell. 

I'd appreciate if you could implement something like that.

Hear hear. Confluence has two ways of inserting a table that I like:

  1. Ctrl + Shift + I
  2. Markdown syntax: 
    || Column heading || Column heading ||

Please implement something like this!

I would also like to see some more table formatting options like:

  • Merge  cells
  • justification options (left, center, right)
  • cell border line styling options
  • paragraph type options (H1, H2, etc or header row Bold, center option)
  • Other table width options that just the expaned, not-expanded 
  • Convert a list to table
