copy design table to drawing?

Don't flame me for asking this question, as I've done some searching, and not finding what I'm looking for.

 

I have a design table in a model that I want to put on the drawing.  The method I find for doing this is, to format the design table in the part, save, go to the drawing, click on a view, then insert the table.

 

That's fine, but my tables get large and will probably need to get split across sheets, and I don't want to screw around with hiding rows etc, as I think that's a good way to lose information.  So, does 2019 support splitting design tables?  I'm guessing not.

 

I'd like to go back to simply copying the design table into a pre-made table on the drawing.  And that's where I'm having a problem.   Here's what I'm doing:

1) edit the table in the part

2) mark the information I want to copy, and right-click/copy

3) select outside the table to close it

4) switch to the drawing window

5) select the first cell of the drawing table, and hit ctrl-V

 

My old notes have this as the method to use, but it's not working. The information does not copy. Am I doing something wrong, or does SW not support this method any more?
