Why can't I edit the title of a copied Cloud Confluence page?


Yesterday I copied an existing Cloud Confluence page just so that the page I was creating would appear in the page tree where I wanted it to appear.  Afterwards I deleted the old content of the page and created the new content, but I was not able to change the title of the new page until after I saved the copied page.  After I published the page with the title reflect is a copy of the former page, I was able to then edited it to change the title.  Today one of my staff members experienced the same issue. 

I'm wondering how common is this issue, is the cause known, and is their a fix?

Just chiming in to let you know I experienced the same issue a few days ago. What I was able to do was to type what I wanted somewhere else on the page, then copy and paste that info into the title. After I published, I closed the tab then reopened it, and then I was able to edit anywhere I needed to in the page.

It was the first time I'd every experienced that issue.

Strange indeed.  We migrated to the Atlassian Cloud months ago, but this issue appeared or was noticed this week for the first time.

I'm also seeing this. It's definitely something new as I've previously copied pages and not had this issue.

Can edit the copied page content no problem.

Can delete characters from the title (delete/backspace).

Can't add characters by typing in the title, but can paste text in.

If I save the copied page and re-open to edit, then the title is editable as normal.

Using Atlassian Cloud with Chrome 80.0.3987.106

Same here. Please fix.

Same here. Having this issue since last week. Would definitely appreciate a fix. 


Also, pasting links sometimes show the text and sometimes the url. 

Yes please fix this is annoying.
