Did the new Confluence update remove Anchors?

I used to use jumps and anchors to navigate longer articles I wrote (In a table of contents like fashion) but I no longer see the Anchor macro listed. Is it gone? If so, what can be used similarly to the Anchor?

it looks like they were removed from the new editing experience. There is an open request to add it back, you can review and vote for it here: CONFCLOUD-66773

Hope this helps,

They added/enabled the headers links, but that is only part of the full anchors capability that we had before.

It seems they didn't understand the users request.
