Can i have the shortcut of code macro on edior itself

We use confluence for documentaion but i find very time consuming to select the code macro , its 5 step process.

even typing by hand is also not efficient. Isn't it possible to have the button like we on the ans question editor to select the text and hit `ctrl + K` or something to chnage it to syntax highlighting.

I mean every fourm has code button on the editor

Confluence is big company , why can't they do like it

When working in edit mode on Confluence, most macros can be accessed by opening with a "{" and start typing directly after it. When you start typing, a dropdown will appear with possible macros based on the information you have provided so far.

In order to add a code block, start by typing "{cod......." and the code block macro will appear in the dropdown.
