Document Outline / Navigation in Editor

When working on a document in the editor it is very tedious to navigate without a document outline. Its endless scrolling to find the right position and you get lost easily when you want to rearrange a document. The whole editing experience could be simpliefied with an outline that you can show/hide when needed (see google docs)

Agree also very very tedious, make me considering moving back to google drive

I've seen the same pattern with my teams over the last few years. Users get so frustrated by this gap that they fall back to their preferred editor (Google Docs or Office 365). I don't blame them, but predictable confusion ensues and documentation begins to sprawl in other poorly integrated systems.

For my part, I've been drafting my docs in markdown via Obsidian then pasting into Confluence when I post the initial version. Not ideal, but I do like having an archival copy of my docs.

I agree. This makes it difficult for me to migrate Word users into Confluence.

I've built floating table of contents while in view mode, but I haven't found anything while in edit mode.
