Moving pages just got easier!

Hi everyone!

I'm Nicholas Reichert, a software developer here at Atlassian, working on Confluence Cloud. My team's been hard at work making it easier for you to move pages across your site.

Previously, if you wanted to move a page while you were editing, you would usually have to close the editor, move the page, and then go back to your edits. That inconvenient workflow will soon be a thing of the past! Instead, you can now move any page or blog right from the editor. (As always for moves, you must have permission to delete the content and create it in its new location.) Just like on the view screen, you can move through the ‘more actions’ menu (the "..." button,) or you can click the new pencil icon next to the breadcrumbs:

You'll have access to the same improved move dialog that’s available on the view screen. Unlike the current move dialog for draft pages, this improved dialog shows a preview of the page tree, so you can select and visualize the page’s location before you confirm the move. Within this preview, you can drag and drop the page to its new location, or even move it to a different space.

We're also introducing a better dialog for moving blogs, too! The previous move blog modal (below, left) looked a bit dated. The cleaner-looking modal (below, right) matches with the rest of Confluence and will be available both in the editor and on the view screen.

This change is just a small part of our work to modernize Confluence and make editing a breeze. We'll be rolling out this feature slowly during June, so if you don't see it just yet, you will soon.

This is a small but powerful update. So many times I've been inside the editor and also needed to move the page, but had to publish first, alerting users watching the space to an update that mysteriously disappeared once I moved the page to a different space.

I love it, I needed this feature, and I'm standing 100% with @Andy Gladstone on his use case. When creating a page as part of a page tree, I always stumble across the issue of a page being created in the wrong position (let's say it's a recurring meeting notes page following particular order). Now I can reposition the page while creating it, which is just perfect.

I don't move pages that often upon creating a new page (or editing) and I would say I mostly use it when I use make.page URL. With this, however, I can save a couple of clicks - definitely a nice update!
