I want to use curly braces in some text on a page in confluence, but I can't work out how to stop it automatically creating a macro. I tried double curly braces which created a code block, and also tried backslash and forward slash.
You have two options
Here is a nice alternative to Stephen Deutsch's answer # 2:
You first enter whatever goes between the curly braces AND the right curly brace -- this causes no problems.
Then, you insert the left curly brace, which does pop up the dialog -- but you can just ESC out of that.
If you can tolerate the macro while you type, just keep going. After putting the right brace and the macro is complete, hit undo (ctrl-Z) twice.
If you can't tolerate the macro, hit ESC. The macro will still come back to life with the right brace though, but undo (ctrl-z) twice will put it back to normal text.
