Code macro is ignoring spacing for single line examples.

I'm trying to write a line by line breakdown of a function in Python, similar in design to the following:

codedefinition
def foo(bar):
We define the function foo to take input and store it in bar.
print(bar+"!")
Then we print bar and append an exclamation point.

However, the indented line examples (in this case print(bar + "!")), lose the two leading spaces (as seen in my example above). Is there any way to stop the removal of those? I want to maintain Python's syntax between cells, without having to completely recopy the code each time.

While horribly manual and inconvenient, you can use divs to style the text and add unicode spaces for indents:

Add Div macro and in the Styles field, put

font-family: monospace

Then wherever you want the spacing, copy the space between these brackets, ] [, and add that to the front of the text as many times as you need. Then color and bold the text using the regular Confluence Edit toolbar.
