Edit Informational Text

How do I edit and/or create informational text? It is a commonly asked question but the responses are out of date. I do have the edit layout button however I do not have a button for informational text (this button looks to be next to the graph button and the insert pull down.

I am assuming that you are talking about instructional or informational text that is added on a template.  You have to be editing a Confluence Template for this to be available.  


Yes I am referring to the informational text that is added on a template that only appears when you click edit. What you are showing me is exactly what I said I don't have.

@Colleen It does not look like you are editing a template.  How are you accessing the template that you are editing?

I am accessing Confluence through the browser through my companies data service center I suppose. I created a Project template and I am trying to customize it to make it adaptable to my needs. Whether I am in edit or not edit mode, I still don't have this button available. I am thinking maybe we have restrictions or I need to submit a support ticket to request it.ConfluenceProjectPoster.PNGConfluenceEdit.PNG

@Colleen Thanks for the screenshot.  You are editing a confluence page.  To edit a template you will need to go to space tools -> content tools


This will bring you to the templates in the space.  Here you can edit the template and the option will be available.  


This solution worked. I was not familiar with this space tool. I created my own template which allowed me to edit informational text and now I can see it as an option when I click Create - Thank you
