Compare page versions in an overall view


I was wondering if there is an option to view an entire document with highighted changes from the a previously versions .

When I use the version comparison, the document is always reduced to the passages where changes have been made - passages without changes are hidden.

For a review, it would be much easier to view the entire document to get the context of a (changed) paragraph.

Thanks and best regards,

Hi @Thilo Rees 

I can't reproduce your behaviour. 

When I compare two pages, the whole page is displayed and I see everything, even the text that was not adjusted.

Which version do you have on confluence?

Hi Dominic,

sorry for the delay.

My Version is 

You can reproduce this, if you take a long page, let's say 10.000 Words. If I put one change to an paragraph only this paragraph is shown when I compare two versions of the document - or, to be more specific, only the change and the surrounding lines are shown.... I pu an Secreenshot below.

Three dots ("...") represent the "missing" Content. I understand, that this a feature, not a bug - If you are interested in getting a quick overview of he changes made...

To do a whole document review, it would be better to get a wider view to get the whole document including the highlighted changes.

Best regards, Thilo

Hey @Markus Hadelko 

I now can reproduce this. 

I think, this is a feature for not showing uninteresting texts.

I would suggest you to contact Atlassian support and ask them about it:
