I am experiencing some issue when changing the representation of uploaded documents. See below:
Steps to reproduce:
1.Go to edit mode on Confluence page
2. Click on "Upload files" (file is uploaded )
3. Click on insert
4. Once inserted you are given various options to change the representation of the file uploaded
5 . Select the "Show as link"
6. Confluence goes spastic (it goes in and out of edit mode, hangs etc.)
7. But if you close the page and come back it has actually changed the format to a link rather than a thumbnail
Browser : Microsoft Edge
Confluence version: 6.5.0
Hope the above makes sense, let me know if you need more info.
I have checked the know-issues/ bugs, does this sound familiar?
Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. The issue was unfamiliar to me and I checked for known issues, too.
I tested on both Confluence 6.5 and Confluence 6.6 and got the same result you described. Also as you describe, if you hit the refresh button in Edge after you get stuck on the preview page, Confluence will display the attachment as a link. I have to admit it's an ugly procedure as Confluence blinks in and out of the lightbox views.
I created a bug report to let our development team know about this issue:
