Cloud: how can I edit the font and fontsize of specific parts of a single confluence page?


See my question above. Is it possible to edit the font and fontsize of specific sections of a single confluence page? I'd like to have the front page to use a different font and fontsize than all the other pages?

Thanks in advance!

Forget what i said, apparently this is not available under cloud. The more you know.

I was looking for a free solution...

Hi Nick,

When you edit a page the editor toolbar is displayed at the top.  This includes different heading styles, font colours and font effects (bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, subscript and superscript) and bullet and numbered lists. If you click in the Answer or Comment boxes on this page you'll see an almost identical toolbar (it doesn't have the font colours, but it has the other tools I've mentioned) at the top of the text box.

Using these tools is exactly like using the tools in Word or Outlook - select the text and apply the heading style, font colour and font effects you want.

The Confluence HTML Macro that Bart mentions is not available in Confluence Cloud for security reasons, but if you go the the Atlassian Marketplace there are plenty of plugins that expand your formatting options - Scroll Office is a popular one, but there are others.


As you're looking for free only, these are the free Confluence plugins that are returned when you search for "formatting" in the Marketplace. Hope that helps.

Hi Rob,

I am aware of the editor toolbar, but this one is limited. I'm looking for something (free), like the Stylesheet macro to edit the font and fontsize of a specific worth or sentence. I bet there must be something that is available within the edit mode of a confluence page.

Thanks for the help though.

Hi Nick,

A couple of popular free plugins that might help you then:

For "pop and wow" on your page: Spectrum Formatting

For adding new fonts and getting more font effects: Webfonts for Confluence

You can use the Style macro to change all the h1s, etc. to a specific font and size. If you want different sections to be unique, you can use the Div macro in concert with the Style macro or by simply putting font and size info in the Styles field of the Div macro.

Hi Milo, 


Great solution, but when you want to export the page to PDF something overwrites the div macro where I change the font, although in preview it's correct....

True, exporting to PDF is a separate issue, and unfortunately the space-level Stylesheet overrides. There might be a way to wrap text in a Div macro then modify that div in the PDF Stylesheet.
