Background colour of a section

I would like to change a background for a particular section. It would make a nice break rather than just headings. Is it possible?

Hi @Dawid Nawrot ,


If you are referring to the Section macro in Confluence, then we do not have an option to customize the background.




In the old editor there was a background color macro that would do this...I used it to visually pop the Table-of-contents on longer pages (think wikipedia look).  The new editor has done away with this and the TOC macro cannot be inserted in the "note" macros.

Are there plans to restore the ability to add some background or border to layout sections or even just the TOC macro itself?
