We’ve made a few updates to your editing experience that we think will help keep your work (and your team) organized. Some of these may look familiar, as they were in the old editor, and some are brand new!
Find & Replace
Find & replace is a quick way for you to swap a word or phrase with a new one. When editing a page, just click the magnifying glass. Type the word or phrase you no longer want to use and below, add the new word or phrase. All the places where the old word appears will be highlighted. You can replace the word just one time or replace every time that word appears on that page by clicking “Replace all”.
Copy & Paste Layouts, Info Panels, and Code Snippets
The highly requested functionality to select an entire layout, info panel, or code snippet is back! Copy (or cut) and paste that selected macro anywhere on the page. Simply select the area by clicking the bottom right corner until the whole macro is selected. Copy and paste anywhere else on that page– or on a totally different page!
If you login right now, you can copy & paste for layouts and info panels. Code snippets are coming shortly! It’ll be available to everyone by the end of June. Check out the GIF for an example.
“Sticky headers” for tables
Large tables on your Confluence pages will now be easier to read! When your table’s quantity of rows or columns expands beyond the view pane, don’t fear – the head column and/or row will stay put as you scroll. This will help with the readability of tables so you constantly know what the value of any cell is. Don’t see them yet? You’ll experience them in the next few weeks!
Building a list of to-dos with subtasks? Now action items can be indented. They will act like bullets where you can be a hierarchical structure to know which tasks are nested under others. It’s a helpful way to organize your team’s responsibilities. Keep an eye out for this mid to late June.
Link Labels for Drafted & Archived Pages
Have you ever linked to a page and not realized that it was actually unpublished? Well, now we will notify you! If you add a link to a Confluence page that is either sitting in “draft” mode or has been “archived”, a label will automatically appear next to that link.
As soon as a draft page is published or an archived page is restored, the label will disappear.
We hope these little improvements help you do your best work and stay organized. More enhancements are on the way, so stayed tuned.
