Highlight words in confluence text editor

Many text editors, including popular among developers StackExchange question editor, allows users to highlight single words in the sentence: bf3db20a9a67af1221ffcc37d2b71709.png

For example, ErrorAction is highlighted.


I don't seem to be able to find anything similar in Confluence page editor. How can I achieve a similar highlight background color effect? Thanks.

I agree that it should be as easy as selecting some text and hitting some kind of "background text color" button. But it's nearly as easy with the Highlight macro, though you may have to toy with putting extra spaces in front or behind the text in the macro to get it to space out right.

There is a discussion about the same topic in another thread:
Change text background color in confluence editor?

Use span stype around the word that you want to highlight
