Was the Page Properties Macro improved?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Properties Macro

The document says: "In the macro body create a two column table and remove the header row." in the paragraph "Adding the Page Properties macro to a page" and "If your table has a header row, this row will be ignored by the Page Properties Report macro. You should remove the header row." in the footnote but I found no need to remove the header.  In addition, we can leave the 3rd and more columns which might be useful for legends, descriptions, comments, remarks of the row.  I think the Page Properties Report Macro gracefully ignore those columns now.PageProperties_vertical-edit.PNG

And I found a horizontal table with heading row could work as my expectation;

The result of the Page Properties Report macro was seen;

This is great!  But is this an unexpected behaviour of the macros or lazy updating documentation?

Hi Mamoru,

Thanks for pointing out the errors on that page. We promise it's not laziness; we're just super busy! :wink:

Hi Giles, I know you are one of the busiest persons in the world.:-) I hope this feature of the Page Properties Report macro won't disappear in future. Thank you, TASH

are there plans to make the report scrollable like the rest of the tables in the latest version?

Hi Vince, I agree with your idea but guess you better raise another proposal desribing your idea in detail to Atlassian Support with a bloody-prefixed title like "FATAL! ", "CRITICAL!! " to attract the busiest engineers' attentions;-) Thank you, TASH
