Hi @Engin Mahmut

This is a known issue with the new editor that's actively being addressed by our team and you should see a fix soon. Feel free to follow this ticket for updates!

@Kesha Thillwe are still having this problem; the template editor uses the classic editor. Also, it does not appear that the ticket you've linked above (61345) is for this issue, but rather for "Meeting notes template is uneditable." Moreover, the ticket does not appear to reference the issue being described here, that templates still use the classic editor. If you could post the ticket that applies to this issue, I would love to track it. Thank you!

Had the same issue. You can create templates empty in the old editor and then used the convert button on the list of templates to get the new editor.

Hi there, Engin.

I can confirm that Edit feature in Confluence Cloud (as of today - October 15, 2018) shows the new Editor layout.

Can you please double confirm if you are seeing the same layout on your end too?

I can not confirm it, my end. 26/10, 11:31 CEST. Old editor for templates. Firefox if that matters. Sort of annoying, as shortcuts are different.


We are still experiencing this issue. Could this be because we can still create pages with the Classic editor (Pages that use the new editor can currently only be created by specifically selecting the "Try the new editing experience" template during page creation.)
