I use a spreadsheet to populate my glossary in Confluence. The glossary uses the expand macro so that you can click on the word to see the definition (see the first screen shot below). Example hereimage2017-3-1 16:23:48.png
To populate the glossary I use a spreadsheet with 3 columns Term, Definition and Layout. Example here
The layout column is a formula that formats the expand macro using the information from te 2 columns to the left. The formula is
In this example, the above formula goes in cell D3 and you can copy it down to as many terms as you like.
To get the glossary into Confluence, I next copy all the cells in column D into Notepad shown here
Excel adds double quotes to the beginning and end of each line (term) so those need to be removed. Once done, I simply copy those line my Confluence page using the Insert Markup choice and I'm done.
Hope this helps.
