Broken table layout due to a Decision logs macro

Hi,  I have a Confluence page that uses a Decision logs macro. In edit mode, it's fine, but after saving it, the layout is kind of broken, ie the last column gets squashed!! Has anyone encountered that problem? and found what was causing it?

I thought maybe some of the text formatting we were putting in one of the decision tables was causing this, so I made sure to remove any formatting, but still no luck.

Here is a screenshot of the headers that illustrates what happens to the last column:

For info, the way I worked around this was by removing the driver column for the macro table config, not sure why, but after that it looks much better.

@Valerie Pierre 

Are you the only one experiencing this issue? Or did other user report it as well?

Also did you try on a different browser?




Thank you for your message. I don't know about others in the community, but this has been happening for us and it's really cumbersome to read.

We use this macro to show the status of our recent decision page across all of our Confluence spaces. 

I don't think the issue is browser dependent, I could reproduce it in both Chrome and Safari. What's really weird is that the table shows fine in Edit mode! It's only after saving it that it shows with this squashed Driver column.

In case that could help here is the list of fields that are listed in one of the Decision pages.

And here is the list of fields that we selected for display on the decision report macro:

For reference:

@Valerie Pierre  sorry for the confusion, I meant any other users in your company are experiencing this issue?

Anyway, since you are a Cloud user and same behaviour is happening in other browsers, please click here to raise a Support Ticket with Atlassian



Thank you, will do.

Same issue here since moving to the new editor. Our old decision logs look fine but the ones added with the new editor are squashed.  We've already logged a ticket for this since it doesn't seem to have been resolved.

Thank you @Valerie Pierre , we had tried removing columns to no avail.  We ended up creating a page with the Legacy Editor as Confluence support indicated that it's a known issue with the Fabric editor, noted in this bug report:

Displaying decisions with long text on the Decisions Report macro breaks the Page title Column on the macro after publishing

Thank you @Tracy Moffat for sharing the link to the bug report. I indicated it impacts our team as well.
