How can I save an edited default macro like codeblock for users?

Hi Community,

as a newbie I have two questions:

While editing a page when I start content with { I can jump into the makrobrowser, choose CODEBLOCK, insert the desired parameters and get it into the page.

Is there a way to

a) save those special edited codeblock e.g. under a new name to have it handy the next time I want to use it or do I have to go this way every time when I insert a similiar codeblock?

b) How do I get this saved & customized macro codeblock_userdefined into the dropdown-list when I type in a {

Thanks for your support,

Specifically with the {code} macro, there is functionality built in to the Confluence Admin Console that allows you to change the default behaviour of the macro for all users:

You should be able to achieve this with User Macros.

See and related pages for more info on this.
