This has been true from version 3.0, but only form version 3.5.1 pasted text has been changed to single paragraph.

Till version 3.5 (inclusive) each table row was converted to a pair of paragraphs: an empty one and a paragraph with text.

Probably Opera doesn't see table tags as selected.

Till version 3.2 if using mouse, you have selected table contents plus you have went down with a cursor below the table, the whole table got pasted on CRTL+V

Also when you click on a border the whole table gets selected and copied on CRTL+C.

Looks to me like this issue has something in common with #8269

Copying and Pasting tables seems to be working correctly in Opera 11.60. However a new issue has been introduced. If you only select some table cells e.g. a table row, and then copy and paste this into a different table cell, the content is pasted as text, rather than as table cells.

To Reproduce:
Select a table row in CKEditor by clicking <tr> on the elements path bar.
Use Ctrl+C to copy the row and then move the cursor to a different table cell.
Use Ctrl+V to paste the table row.
Problem: The content is just pasted as text instead of within <td> tags.

The html content detected on the editor's paste event is simply the text within the selection. In Opera 11.52, the <td> tags were also included in the html for the pasted content.

I was still able to reproduce original issue. No matter whether I used CRTL+A, selected whole text with a mouse or clicked table element on elements path, the table is always pasted as text.

The only way to copy the whole table is clicking on it's border and press CRTL+C.

About new issue:

  1. Go to ajax sample and create table as presented below (do not copy the code)
    <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width: 500px">
  2. Switch to WYSIWYG
  3. Go to third row and select this row either by clicking on 'tr' in elements path or with a mouse

First problem: It is impossible to select any other row than first using elements path.

  1. After you have copied the third row with a mouse go to second row to cell 2.2 and paste the contents as shown aa^

Second problem: Elements from third row get pasted in first row as text.

  1. Copy the third row once more with a mouse go to second row to cell 2.2 and paste the contents as shown a^a

Third problem: This result is most valid from all presented here as contents get pasted in correct row but still contents are pasted as text and not as table row.
