Can I add a panel in the middle of a numbered list?

We have recently migrated from Server to Cloud. We uses the Notes macro extensively. This has not pulled through and needs to be replaced with the Panels macro. Can I add a Panel in the middle of a numbered list. I was able to do this with Notes.

Is there still no fix to this?



Hi Lynne,

I use Confluence Server, but I was able to add a panel in a numbered list.  The list numbers continued to increment as expected.

I simply typed "{" to open the macro editor as I built the list out, but you could probably also put them in after adding all the list items.

Good luck!

Hi, we are migrating over from Server to Cloud. I cannot seem to do this in Cloud, I could in Server. Using '/' to open the macros and selecting the macro simply puts the Panel at the bottom of the page.

That's unfortunate.  Was the Notes macro a user macro?  I don't see it in Atlassian's documentation or on the Marketplace.

Ah, Note.  Yes, I use that, Warning, and Info from time to time.  I think they work better than Panel for what you'd use them for.  The documentation says they're available in Cloud, but that page also hasn't been updated since 2017...

Maybe a Cloud user can test this for you.

Hi Lynne,

Did you ever sort this out?  I'm hitting the same problem - it's a massive step backwards if this is the best cloud Confluence can do.

I am not currently working on my Confluence Cloud project but I think I ended up having to move them to the end of each list. Not great

Yeah, I've added an asterisk (*) or caret (^) at the end of the sentence just before where the panel *should* have gone and then started the text in the panel with the same mark - kind of like a footnote.

Agreed, not great.  Thanks for the quick response though!

Also experiencing this issue. No solution yet.

experiencing the same issue.

inserting an info panel from the toolbar breaks the numbering.

typing /info to insert an info panel adds it to the bottom of the numbering list

Same issue here - breaks the numbering.

Same issue here. Once I switched to the new editor all of my pages broke. This is the most annoying change and it makes zero sense. I need to be able to insert warning, note, info, tip, and code panels between numbered paragraphs/steps. Atlassian, please fix this asap!

Same issue 😬

Also discussed here

Would love to be able to use Warning/Info/Notice given how visually helpful they are, but they're definitely breaking any page using numbered lists
