What happened to the edit button?

What happened to the edit button when you want to edit a document? Now you have to download a document and then upload it. Is that correct?

Hi @Erik Grant 

You still have the edit button to edit the page. If you are referring to the new editor then you can see the pencil icon. Click on it to edit it.

Hi Erik,

It sounds like you may be referring to the functionality to edit office documents in Confluence (please let me know if I misunderstood).

Confluence 6.11 introduced the Companion App to edit files, which replaces the old "Edit in office functionality" (See Confluence 6.11 Release Notes). Once you have the companion app installed, you should be able to edit files by clicking the file to open a preview, then clicking the Edit with dropdown menu. Alternatively, you can click Edit next to the file on the attachments page.

For full steps, see the Edit Files documentation.

I hope this helps!

Please also note that this functionality with the Atlassian Companion App (which I love) is more or less broken with the new editing experience (Fabric Editor) for Confluence Cloud. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
