I have created user-defined templates on Confluence Cloud in the past. In these templates, I often created a new text variable and reused it via "$variableName" in later text to auto-populate the user-supplied value. This no longer works.
Typing "$" does not work on the new editor and I don't see a keystroke that will enable this feature either.
According to this page for Confluence Cloud
"Type $ and the variable name, then press Enter to add a new variable or to select an existing variable from a list of suggestions. The suggestions dialog shows variables already defined in this template."
Thank you for reporting this to us.
This case has been logged as the following bug:
At this time, there is no known workaround in the new editor. If you need to be able to use the legacy editor and don't have the option, I recommend you contact the Cloud Support team and they can help you with that.
