We are on Confluence Server 7.2 and we recently started using the "Excerpt" macro more frequently.
When adding a macro to a page, we use the + button, which gives a long list of macros, and the additional option for "Other Macros."
I would like to be able to add the macro "Excerpt" onto the dropdown (potentially replacing one of the others, if necessary), thus removing the need to open the macro browser. Is that possible?
I have used the later method to add some user macros to the insert menu.
Thank you for the response. That's a great, detailed response that could provide an avenue to our solution.
Reading through the documentation, that looks to be a way to add an icon to the Confluence page editing menu, is that correct?
That may be the only way to achieve the effect we're trying to get, and it will definitely work (based on my reading of the link you provided). I was hoping for a lighter-weight solution to modify the specific macro menu, instead of the editor.
I apologize if I overlooked this capability in the link above (and for asking a repeated question!). Thank you for your time and assistance-
There are limited attach points. You specify them in the web-item module (setcion attribute), for example:
<web-item key="editor-figuretitle" name="Figure Title" section="system.editor.featured.macros.default" weight="13">
<description>Editor Insert menu link.</description>
But yes, a feature to be able to promote a macro to the featured list would be great, and has been asked for for years (soon to be 10). ;-) CONFSERVER-23368
