How do I embed a Vimeo or YouTube video into an answer using Confluence Questions?

We are trying to embed screencasts into answers in our Confluence Questions Cloud system.

Using standard Confluence pages, we can use the Widget macro to embed a Vimeo video successfully.

However, there's no option in the editor menu bar when writing a question or answer while using Confluence Questions.

Hi Matthew, although the Confluence Questions toolbar doesn't have an insert button, many macros can be added in your questions and answers, especially those like the Widget connector that support auto-convert. 

For YouTube and Vimeo, simply paste the link into the editor and it will automatically add the widget connector for you, like the one below.

For other macros, such as panels, you can use the { text shortcut to get to the macro browser. 

Not all macros will work (for example macros that rely on pages like the children display are not going to work, but your basic formatting ones will be just fine). 

Hope this helps.
