Can I configure larger macro placeholder (page include or multiexcerpt) to see long page titles?


I work with a lot of "page include" macros in the documents and when I try to edit the final result I have a problem with matching text with the correct macro placeholder. It's not a big drama but if it's done multiple times it's time-consuming. There is a lot of space next to the placeholder to display the rest of the name so I know what I'm looking at. In my case, it's frequently the end of the name that makes a difference. 

It's similar when i have to add the page name to the macro - the field is small and I can't see the entire name of my page (in my case the last 2 letters of it can make a difference). 

Sorry - no screenshots allowed...

Hi @Natalia Glowinska 

I know that feeling... But saddly, this is not possible out of the box.

There is possibly one dirty way, but this is totally a hack:

I think you are on confluence server, therefore you or your administrator could change the HTML / CSS. You have to inspect the placeholder for the correct HTML / CSS ids and classes and have to change the width. 

I would not recommend this way :)
