When I am in Edit mode of a Confluence page, there are places where I want to display a "hint" as to what should be entered at a particular location
An example of this is the Task list macro where it gives some useful instruction for when you are creating the tasks.
How do I create that "hint" text (that hint text doesn't appear in the normal viewing mode of the page)
To replicate the Instructional text used in templates, use the Confluence Source Editor add-on to add a placeholder:
<ac:placeholder>This is an example of instruction text that will get replaced when a user selects the text and begins typing.</ac:placeholder>
While not straight forward, it's actually pretty easy to do.
Hope that helps!
