Hi, I am able to access all formatting normally in my space page:
but when i create child pages under that space page, I only get this formatting:
Am I doing something wrong? I have no way to move page layout panels or set it to a single panel.
Let me know. Thanks
The first screenshot shows a layout bar that is hidden until you toggle it on with the button that is highlighted in solid blue - the highlight is there when that menu is shown, the button is a toggle.
In the second screenshot, the highlight is not there, so you have not clicked it to show the layout bar (so the bar remains hidden)
Please be patient with me :), but when I click on the layout button, it simply adds a new layout panel without toggling anything on or off. What you see in screenshot 2 is what I get.
I just joined two days ago so I'm using whatever Cloud version is most current. Perhaps that is where we are disconnected?
What I'm saying is that the edit features in screenshot 1 (which is my space page) are what i'm expecting, but a child page edit doesn't provide the same edit options.
I'm sorry, I forget that the new editor has removed the functions for moving sections up and down.
Sections have effectively gone away on Cloud. What you get now is "layouts" which are "simplified" down from sections. Annoyingly, you can't move them around any more as they're not really sections. You have to insert things between them, the old clunky word-processing way.
You're missing a button for "single column", because a single column section is no different to plain body text.
Ah, that's not because it's a space page, it's because it's a page that existed before the new editor was installed on your instance.
Existing pages will continue to use the old editor, with sections. New pages will be created and edited with the new thing, layouts.
You've reminded me to dig up https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-65581 and vote on it!
When I created a cloud account this past Friday night, it gave me a pre-populated space page which I simply modified and I didn't start with a new space page.
So your comment about the page being created with the old editor is probably true since my situation mimics that. The new editor however, takes functionality away. I should be able to have text flow along in a single panel, rather than the default of two. And taking away the Move Up / Move Down is really something useful that was removed.
Workaround in my case is to simply make copies of the space page and I have the editor I want in my child pages now.
Thanks for your support!
