Documents - Show as LINK vs THUMBNAIL

Ernie I'm New Here Dec 20, 2019

I'm not getting the option to show as link once I upload a document. And it's only showing as thumbnail.

This is happening for new pages ONLY, pages added before the last update still have the option to show as thumbnail or link.

Hello Ernie,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you.

The new editor is still missing some features that were included in the old version of the editor. You can find a list of some of these features from our Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap.

In this case, the ability to link to an attachment as text is logged here:

By using the Attachments macro, you will be able to obtain the URL of an attachment, and link text to that by pasting the link into the Link Macro.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.



HI Shannon, this is helpful - thanks!

Do you know if the ability to show a link as text will be returning at all?]


Hi Jasmine,

According to the roadmap page above, it is on the short-term backlog at this moment. Please watch the feature request I sent you above and you can be updated when there is any progress.
