There doesn't seem to be an option to add a border to an image like there used to be.
Instead I only see alignment options:This is on a free trial. Is this limited or has that been dropped as a default feature?
Was it part of a plugin that's missing in the free trial?
Really frustrationg about it. It breaks all of my company's document formating.
Now I'm drawing rectalges on each image I upload on confluence. and my colleagues blame on me about this "IMPROVEMENT".
Why Atlassian do not hearing user's voice? I loved Confluence but not now.
Very dissapoint about it.
I would also like to say that the new functionalities worsen the product. I constantly used a lot of features that are no longer available. It seems like Atlassian doesn't care at all about their customers. There is a list of features (and this one is one of the most important ones) that you no longer have which were crucial. Another example is formatting colors. The provided colors are a joke. I want old colors with full palette back.
You should reconsider and bring back the features people are complaining about no longer having.
Welcome to Atlassian Community! It's nice to meet you.
We don't have trial versions of our software here at Atlassian, so what you are seeing is the full functionality. You are now on the new editing experience in Confluence, and this is the reason for the change.
A few features have been removed, and it will either be permanent or temporary, depending on the feature.
With the border feature which you are asking about, we are removing it and replacing it with a new feature called Image properties. Have a look at the Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap for details:
[This]... would let you add a title or various novelty frames to your image, is being removed. This is being replaced with image annotations, which lets you add shapes, arrows, brushstrokes, text, and blur to images, in various different colors.
We have a public discussion about the new editor going on at Try out the new editing experience. Feel free to join in, and let us know your feedback.
Thank you for sharing your workaround. Otherwise, I would have probably added an inline border on the image in a photo editing program instead.
Please do share this feedback, I think that a lot of users could benefit as well. You can also try creating a new feature request at jira.atlassian.com, as I don't currently see one for the new editor.
I saw that a feature request didn't end up being created for this, so I created one below:
Please go ahead and vote on the request and you'll be automatically added to the list of watchers and be updated of any changes.
Thank you again for the feedback!
Definitely do miss the image border and resize options on drag & drop images onto a page.
It helped to cut down the time to produce pages on the fly for on-screen presentation.
It also allowed me to go through the pages my staff would produce and quickly help add borders around instructional images.
At the same time it also made life insanely challenging when we needed to export the page to a word or PDF document for instance and had to manually resize each image to something that would fit the word/pdf sizes...
Thanks for the information and continual improvement attempts! :)
So, in essence, the chef has removed the meat patty from the existing Hamburger ingredients and put it on the "Coming Soon" list. He is now asking the diners to go vote on whether they want the meat patty back in their Hamburgers or not. I guess the chef is one hell of an Einstein.
Out in the sane world, ordinary earthlings "Add" new benificial features to their 'existing' list of product features.... not remove a feature and dangle that carrot in front of their customers in the name of future improvements.
Someone on the Confluence team must be a real genius!!
Not to be offensive, but constructively critical. It is extremely disappointing that Atlassian/Confluence has so drank the Kool-Aid of collaborative features implementation.
As a user community we should not be voting on whether to have the basic document editor features, like borders around images, these are things that should just come with the product if you want to release a document editor. What is even more sad is that this solid and easy to use product has become inferior to products like MS Word, which was released in 1989. 31 years later, I'm still having to go back and use MS Word - and why??? Because of picture borders...
I click on the image and the border options show up below, as it was working before they took it away.
I'm indeed using Confluence Cloud.
But you are right, it seems that I can't do that if I create a new page, because it's using the new view.
I'm able to add a border to a page that I created before the new view came in, that's why it's still working. I would be interested if it's possible to go back to that old view, since it's still out there as evident by me being able to add that border on an older page.
Hey Atlassian team,
I'm posting here since you locked the discussion thread here:
Removing the border functionality and the colour palette is one of the stupidest design decisions I have ever come across. You have actively made your product worse and less sticky. Whomever was the Product Owner that signed off this "idea" should be fired.
