Avinoam here from Confluence Product Management.
We heard that you want to control your page margins – rather than having to stick with the current, fixed-width content area.
So, we added a toggle that lets you extend or contract all the elements on a page.
You can also individually control the width of tables, the columns in the available page layouts, and most macros.
While we were at it, we explored which actions are used most when actively editing a page and made these improvements:
Shifted the page Permissions action closer to the Publish button. Those actions are most likely to happen when making the content available for others.
Grouped page-level actions like Move Page and Add Labels in the three dots ( ... ) menu as those aren't as crucial when editing a page. You'll be better equipped to determine the page's location and labels after you are done working with the page content.
There are scenarios in regards to full width that aren’t supported yet, which we’ll be prioritizing and would love your feedback on:
Copying a full width page will copy as fixed width, which can be then set back to fixed width. Ideally this will change to persist the full width selection from the copied page.
Custom templates can’t yet be saved as full width by default. You’ll still need to set them to full width. Ideally this will change to be configurable upon a custom template creation.
All system provided template will open as full width by default. Moving forward we’ll be evaluating the ability for specific templates to be provided as full width out of the box depending on their use case.
Full width can’t yet be saved as a space or user level setting. I.E. a user or admin can configure that all their pages will open in the editor by default in full width. This is also something we’ll be evaluating more closely moving forward and which we’d love your feedback on.
