Can comments be made in the Editor?

Michael Harris Mar 07, 2016

Is it possible to insert editing comments in the Editor that are hidden in Viewing Mode, similar to html/css-comments.

For example

<!-- Please keep this anchor here -->

Since you have the server version you could create a user macro like below and then you could just use the editor like normal to put in the comments. One you create the user macro you will be able to put in a comment macro that will only show in edit mode.

Macro Name:
comment 

Macro Title:
Comment 

Macro Body Processing:
Rendered

How do I add a text "hint" in Confluence Edit

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, as far as I can determine, none of those offer an easy on-the-fly solution for editors to make editing comments hidden from normal viewing.

The placeholder text one works very well and you can enter it pretty easily from the Source Editor. Do you have Confluence Server or Cloud?
