where is the insert->Markup button?

Over here, it says: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/confluence-wiki-markup-938044804.html that you can insert markup this way:

Insert a block of wiki markup (or markdown) into the Confluence editor. (Choose Insert > Markup.)

I don't see that under /insert:

It seems like if I type markdown, it does the right thing, but when I paste markdown it just comes in as a code block.

 

I have some docs I typed up in a MD file on my mac and want to get them into confluence.

Hello there @David Moore !
As you have noticed, our documentation shows some content that is not consistent with the New Editor (Fabric).  I understand that it has been a long time since your question but, I believe that we can give some kind of update!

I have tried to follow the same documentation while using the new editor. As expected, it failed. The features mentioned there are not available for the New Editor.

With this in mind, I filed this bug report aiming at the fix of our documentation:

Currently, our new editor does not support Markup, as explained here:

The workaround explained within the report raised by me relies on the usage of our Legacy Editor (tinyMCE). You should be able to access it. If you are not, there are ways for you to request it, as explained here:


I hope this helps you out! Looking forward to your reply.

this helps, thanks for letting me know!

Hey, great to know that! Thanks for keeping the thread alive @David Moore .

Thanks for sharing that, but it only allows you to type markdown, not insert markdown via a paste action.

A workaround may be to using some kind of automation to "type" the text into the window, but that feels kind of crappy.
