I am a new user to Confluence, and it involves maintaining my documents. It is really painful when I see 'Wiki Markup' displaying completely random thing in markup that I have no idea about.
I just need to disable this thing for my User account! I really hate it to the maximum when its a huge document with lot of tables.
You can't disable it, and it can be really helpful when you need to do something custom. But more importantly, if you are seeing markup in edit mode, then that means that someone before you used it; if it could be disabled, you would lose content.
But the editor doesn't preserve text with the markup correctly anyway.
So simply editing a comment in JIRA, and saving it, can corrupt the text if you accidentally trigger a text effect substitution (I think server side).
I'm raise a bug, but basically let me switch it off please, quietly corrupting my text is confusing and annoying, especially as I was just trying to type a paragraph.
If you want to, you can replace the wiki markup with normal Confluence editor formatting. Here's what you need to do:
Now the wiki markup content should be in Confluence editor format. You should check with the person who made the page originally if there was any reason behind leaving the content in wiki markup, but nowadays there really is not much reason to do so, since it has been phased out since the beginning of Confluence 5, which has already been a few years
If you find out you made a mistake or it doesn't display correctly or whatever, then you can simply go to the page history and restore the last version. That's the beauty of having a wiki
