Old tool bar vs. New Tool bar


Hoping to get some help from someone.

How can I get the OLD editor back?   

I selected try new editor but as near I can tell it lacks common things like font colors (only 7 choices) that are critical in highlighting words, texts...  :(

I've spent hrs reading, researching...   and not luck.  extremely frustrating honestly.

I asked the same question to Atlassian, it seems that the function will be made available little by little on the instances of Jira cloud and Confluence cloud. You can try to see if you have this function in your profile bar, and change (select "turn off now").

Hello,  thanks for reply.  Yeah my research found same thing :(   I'm puzzled though why Confluence NEW Editor team would NOT put font colors equal or better than old editor so I figured I was missing something.  Font color plays a key role in documentation as does BOLD, Underline...   

Atlassian, can you provide a time frame when font color will be updated and/or a detailed step-by-step (dummy proof) way to change between the new vs. old editor?    

Would really help me get my pages polished.
