Cannot use the control panel for lists, headings, code block in a table after import from Confluence server


In a Confluence article, I have a list table with a code block and headings. Table source code in Confluence:

<table class="relative-table" style="width: 73.784%;">
<th class="highlight-#fff0b3" style="text-align: center;" data-highlight-colour="#fff0b3">Block</th>
<th class="highlight-#fff0b3" style="text-align: center;" data-highlight-colour="#fff0b3">Content</th></tr>
<li>Item 1</li>
<li>Item 2</li>
<li>Item 3</li></ul></td></tr>
<td class="highlight-grey" data-highlight-colour="grey"><strong>Code</strong></td>
<td class="highlight-grey" data-highlight-colour="grey">
<div class="content-wrapper" title="">
<p class="auto-cursor-target"><br /></p><ac:structured-macro ac:name="code" ac:schema-version="1" ac:macro-id="591951ae-8df0-4efb-98d5-a66d8fabff8c"><ac:plain-text-body><![CDATA[function pow(x, n) {
if (n == 1) {
return x;
} else {
return x * pow(x, n - 1);

alert( pow(2, 3) ); // 8]]></ac:plain-text-body></ac:structured-macro>
<p class="auto-cursor-target"><br /></p></div></td></tr>
<div class="content-wrapper">
<h3>Heading 3</h3>
<h4>Heding 4</h4></div></td></tr></tbody></table>
<p class="auto-cursor-target"><br /></p>

After importing from Confluence to the Knowledge base, this table looks like this:

As you can see in the screenshot, the panel for managing lists and the code block in this table are not active.

Can you please tell me if this behavior is a bug when lists and code in the table cannot be edited after importing from Confluence?



I'm Lena from the YouTrack Team. 

It is not a bug; it is an expected behaviour. The HTML content cannot be edited via the visual editor. We also show a corresponding hint: 


Please let me know if you have additional questions - I will be happy to answer them. 


Can you please tell me if there will be any fixes for this behavior in the future?


I'm afraid we don't have such plans. HTML blocks are a part of the Markdown content, and we don't plan to move it to the Visual editor.

Please feel free to let me know if you need any more help.
