Hi Community, I'm Ethan, a product manager focused on improving the rich-text editor which supports Confluence Cloud, and the wider suite of products in Atlassian’s platform.
I'm here to announce that indent and outdent buttons are now available on the Editor toolbar in Confluence Cloud.
Indenting and outdenting content has consistently frustrated many users new to our editor, according to usability testing. Whilst the existing indentation functionality remains unchanged, we wanted to make indenting and outdenting easier and more intuitive for users unfamiliar with the
shift + tab keyboard shortcuts.
The buttons can indent or outdent the following:
top-level paragraphs and headings
The maximum depth of indentation is six levels.
The buttons are disabled when indent or outdent is not possible.
We are aware of feedback from our more advanced users that they wish more content were indent-able. For example, when content is nested within other content types (e.g. indenting content in a table). We will track feedback following the rollout of these buttons and use that to help determine the priorities that we will target first.
There is more work to do to improve this functionality, so stay tuned! Please leave any comments or questions below to help inform our upcoming work!
And if you're free and willing, book in some time to chat with my team and I to more deeply understand your use cases for indenting content, and the challenges you face formatting content efficiently to inform our upcoming iterations. You can book in a meeting at a time that best suits via this calendly link: https://calendly.com/eyew/30min
Thanks all and stay safe,
