I have a confluence page where I report progress per week. I use expandable text boxes for each week. I found a "glitch" that I cannot fix.
Sometimes, I see one or two extra lines between my expandable texts and I cannot delete these lines. It looks like this:
> Week 1
> Week 2
> Week 4
> Week 5
Any ideas how to fix this (or at least see what is causing this)?
I found a workaround without the source editor:
Use the mouse to drag and drop the expandable text blocks close together. After you drop a text block immediately below the prevoius one, Confluence will insert a new break between the two again, but this is the "right" type of break which does not show as an empty line in vew mode.
If you do this consistently for all your text blocks, your old "wrong" breaks will end up all at the end of the page and can be deleted there.
Hope that helps (until atlassian finally condescends to fix this bug...)
If you are a Confluence administrator on a downloaded server you can add the Confluence Source Editor for free using the Confluence Admin>Manage Add-ons page.
There is also a paid add-on compatible with both server and Cloud: Source Editor for Confluence
I am curious whether the behavior you describe (extra lines between expand macros) is happening in multiple browsers or if it looks different depending on browser?
If the action is only removed from the menu, you may use the following URL pattern to access this information with a HTTP client:
Replace the "my-server/confluence" and page ID with your information. But probably the service has been remove by the administrators so that you cannot call it with this URL.
Another option would be to use the Confluence REST API.
Again you would need to replace the "my-server/confluence" and page ID.
But this probably would require some extra privileges and finding out what went wrong (and then using the REST API to write the document back) is probably too cumbersome if you can live with the extra spaces anyway.
I would recommend to ask the administrators to install the Confluence Source Editor (which is a handy tool in many situations).
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
