How do I indent a line of pain text?

I have text like below. The first two lines are existing lines and I have indented the second line couple of months ago. But now I cannot indent the 3rd line. The indent button is disabled. If I go to the start of the second line only the outdent button is enabled.

This Confluence could.

Hi Jeevaka,

This was recently removed from Confluence Cloud in the new editor, but you can vote for the feature to return below:

There are a few suggestions listed there for alternatives:

  • Lists continue to support indentation
  • Block quotes provides a good way to differentiate your text (and indent slightly)
  • The info, tip, and panel macros also let you differentiate text
  • Tables can be sized to achieve similar indentation / differentiation.

I hope that helps! Let us know if you have any questions about it.


Thanks ... yeah, just voted.

Good news @Jeevaka Dassanayake - it's coming back :)

EDIT: This has been resolved in

I created a Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey/Violentmonkey script.
It re-enables the indent and outdent buttons while editing.

I big thank you to Ricky Vincent that provided the solution for the script loading issue in CONFCLOUD-58656
