Hi Sidhartha,

Can you clarify your question? The description is blank and I believe it didn't came through the post. Are you referring to some procedure like migrating or upgrading confluence?




Thanks for the prompt reply. 

I am documenting a procedure in confluence. I use steps there. For example, 1,2,3. Now, I want to manually change the step number 2 to A. Can I do that? because if I change it to A, the subsequent step numbering is changed. But I do not want that. Hence, I want the steps to be in this order: 1,A,3 Is it possible?

Hey Sidhartha,

I'm afraid your cannot do it in a very simple way, so you might need to create a user macro for this. One example a bit different but that could be used as a starting point is described here by Stefan Eike:

You might want to take a look at our documentation about User Macro too:


I hope it helps.
