When I want to add an inline comment to plain text I get the following error message: “We can’t add your inline comment; the section you
highlighted may contain a macro or user mention. Try highlighting plain text.”
It is definitely plain text and the storage format looks ok.
The error is non-deterministic and occurs only when using Chrome.
I see the following error in the JS console:
POST https://XXXXXX.com/rest/inlinecomments/1.0/comments 412 (Precondition Failed)
XMLHttpRequest.send @ batch.js?analytics-e…r-enabled=true:9271
Thanks in advance.
Can you tell us how many words you selected when you attempted the inline comment? Was the selection in another language, and are you able to leave inline comments on other sections?
Secondly, what version of Confluence are you using?
Thank you Steve,
I was finding the issue was happening with short two-letter words as well, so I wanted to verify.
It appears that you have run into a bug that has since been resolved in Confluence 6.12.0:
When you're ready to upgrade, you can go straight to 6.12.0 and your issue should be resolved.
If you have any questions about that process, feel free to let us know.
