Is copying and pasting a whole table possible just in the WYSIWYG? (3 posts)

    Copying and pasting within the html area works fine for duplicating tables, but I need my clients to be able to copy and paste tables easily within the WYSIWYG.

    Currently you can only copy and paste cells. I tried multiple solutions but nothing seems to work other than me going back into the html.

    Im looking to copy the whole table and paste it right below and all just within the WYSIWYG. Surely there's a simple fix? Please help

    Pasting in the visual editor is controlled by the browser. Copying some formatted text from a web page and pasting it in the editor on another tab would paste the HTML tags too.

    Copying from MS Word and pasting in the editor would insert (usually not well formed) HTML tags too. Not sure if it's possible to paste whole table assuming your client is pasting from Word. Perhaps try it in IE, Firefox and Chrome to see if it would work differently.
