Is it working when you choose it manually from editor menu (not by using autoconvert to heading). Which version of Confluence are you using? Did you tried on a different browser?

yeah it is working when i choose manually but not in edit or 'Insert markup'

yep, tried chrome and FF

not really sure which version, i've got 'Confluence 1000.0.0-4199d79d365' on the help page if that helps

Hi Jan,

on Confluence Cloud for choosing a headline style you can use the "'#" inline (or the shortcuts) So typing "# Heading" will for example convert the text to a H1 heading. I also tried the "Insert Markup" option and there it worked with "h1. Heading". Just a minute ago. Could you please try and see what happens when you enter "# Test heading" into the editor? If none of the options above work (except choosing a style from the menu) I suggest opening a support ticket.

Best, Max

yeah "#" works for me, thanks!

It looks like there was an unannounced change from Markup to Markdown for the editor autoformatting. I just spent hours looking into this only to find the easy to miss blue notice about the change here (Cloud version):

The page was last edited on June 5, 2018. I don't know if that is around the time the change was made. I last tried using hN. autoformatting many months ago and it worked.

It appears that Control/Cmd + Shift + D editor pane is required to enter Wiki Markup now. And I found no Settings option to toggle between the syntaxes in the main editor. In fact, the Settings -> Editor option still says Markup for autoformat, not Markdown.

I'm just curious how did they decide on the Control/Cmd + Shift + D shortcut? As it is already used by all major browsers and doesn't get passed down to confluence.

Was this even tested?

Edit: grammar
