Customize Confluence editing toolbar

Is it possible to customize the editing toolbar in Confluence? We use the Code macro very often and I'd like to have a button in the toolbar instead of having to open Insert --> Other Macros and search for the Code macro.

This widget could not be displayed.

You can hack it with jQuery.

Add the following to your Custom HTML:

<!-- Replace "Table of Contents" macro in editor's "Insert" drop down list with "Code" -->
AJS.$('li.dropdown-item.macro-toc').attr('data-macro-name','code');
AJS.$('a#toc.item-link').attr('title','Insert Code macro');
AJS.$('a#toc.item-link').text('Code');

The key is the data-macro-name. Setting that to "code" invokes the macro browser and selects the Code macro automatically.

Note: I tried to use append() to add a new macro to the end of the list, but could not get it working. Maybe someone can step in and debug this?

AJS.$('#macro-insert-list').append('<li class="dropdown-item macro-toc" data-macro-name="code"><a id="code" class="item-link" title="Insert \'Code\' macro" href="#"><span class="icon "></span>Code</a></li>');

BTW, this is on Confluence 4.2.3. If you have a different version of Confluence, the style names might be slightly different.

One good workaround is to hit left open curly brace `{` and then start typing the name of the command, e.g. `{code` for code blocks. This opens a filter dropbox which you can then navigate with Up, Down, Enter or the mouse.
