I’m Avinoam, a product manager on Confluence Cloud, and today I’m really excited to let the Community know that all customers can now try out the new editing experience and see some of the improvements and features we’ve been working on first hand.
We’re rolling this out gradually, and over the coming weeks you’ll see your new pages, templates, and eventually even your existing pages open in the new experience. But for now, we’ve made it available as a template ("Try the new editing experience"), so you can use it and get familiar with it in your own time.
Live macro previews: No more grey placeholders! Most of your macros now look the same while editing as they do when published - and some are even fully interactive.
A single autocomplete shortcut: Type / to open a menu and add macros, tables, emojis, mentions and more to your page as you go.
Typography improvements to provide a more readable line length. No more w i d e text on large monitors.
New image controls so you can now easily wrap text around images to the left or right, or even go wide with banner images.
Add 🌶to your page with emoji. Hundreds available, but you can even upload your own.
Prefer to work in markdown? Type or paste markdown onto your page and it'll automatically convert to rich text.
Need to add code to your page? Add a code block, which now features bracket autocompletion, indentation support, and line numbers. We'll even detect code on paste, and create a code block for you.
Our documentation has more details about other features and improvements, as well as info about the rollout process. There’s more improvements to come, and we’ll keep iterating based on customer feedback - so please use the Feedback link in the bottom right corner of the editor, and tell us what you think.
We hope these changes will help you - and any new members of your team - get up and running with Confluence fast, create pages that look better and are easier to read (even on other devices), and feel confident about the content you’re creating. Thanks as always for your patience and for helping us build this.
