Autocomplete "[", "{", "!" doesn't work in Confluence Cloud

Autocomplete of "[", "{", "!" doesn't work.

When I type one of them and start typing text, nothing happens.

However, "@" works fine.

I'm using the Cloud version of Confluence.

In settings the Autocomplete in Enabled.

I'm Confluence admin.

Please help

Hello Gena,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's great to have you!

In the New Confluence Cloud Editor, the trigger key is /, whereas it used to be {@ should still trigger mentions.

If you want to insert a link, instead of [, you can type /link or CMD+K (macOS) CTRL+K (Windows).

You will know if you are on the new editor if your Publish button is in the top right-hand corner instead of the bottom left-hand corner.

Can you give that a try and let me know if it works for you?



Hey Shannon

CTRL+K is exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you!
