Full details are on , but in short:

  • This occurs on Chrome 27, which was released today
  • It is fixed in Confluence 5.1.3, Confluence 5.2, and Confluence OnDemand.
  • There is a plugin you can download for older plugins just to fix this bug: Editor Height Fix for Confluence

Perfect! Works!

Chrome 27 is the dev and Chromium builds of Chrome right now. From what I can see, this would be a rendering issue on Chrome specifically to those builds.

I just tested this in the latest Stable (26) and everything looks to be fine there. If you need regular usage then you should switch back to a stable build of Chrome or use another browser.

May be fixed in Confluence 5.1.3

There is this workaround in pure css : (CONF-28415)

Under Look and Feel > Stylesheet (this is for Confluence 5.1, naming may be different in earlier versions), add the following CSS:

/* CONF-28415 */
form.editor .editor-default,
.editor-fullheight {
    height: 100%;
    height: auto\9; /* IE8 */

That javascript workaround work on Chrome 27.0.1453.73 :

./... Place the following in Confluence Admin > Look and Feel > Custom HTML > At end of the BODY:

AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
  if (AJS.$('#wysiwygTextarea_ifr').length > 0) {

Just upgraded to Chrome 27.0.1453.93, which is the latest stable. The edit area appears too small.

Same happens under Linux with this version:

[8:25] bento:~% chromium --version

Chromium 26.0.1410.63

With confluence 4.3

Same problem here with Chrome 27.0.1453.65. The workaround doesn't work for me, because we're on a ondemand instance.

Hey guys,

I'm on Version 27.0.1453.73 beta and the CSS workaround stopped working.

We had a server reboot yesterday, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

The edit window is full size in Chrome 27.0.1453.81 beta-m for me now. I previously had the same problem as OP.

JS workaround worked for me Conf 4.3, Chrome 27....94

Chrome Version 28.0.1500.20 beta-m works correctly without plugins or confluence patches. This can be found in the current Chrome Beta channel

the java script worked fine. Thank you

I just used the javascript in Confluence 5.1.2 for Chrome 28.0.1500.71 m and it worked well.

hello, I am using Chrome 34.0.1847.116 m and none of the solutions works :(
