How to add a table of contents to confluence without a the macro

I'm creating a Confluence page, but I'm not an admin therefore I just have a icon based menu and none of them are macros. All the articles I've found for inserting a Table of Contents refers to using a macro.

Is there a way to add a table of contents without a macro? Thanks!

Does Ctrl-Shift-A to open the macro selection dialog work?

This menue looks quite unfamiliar to me. Do you have another editor for your pages?

Hi Jennifer,

That looks quite unlike the Confluence editor, more like a standard TinyMCE interface... which version of Confluence are you using?

Hi all -

Thanks for all of the suggestions! Unfortunately none of those worked. I'll dig more - somehow I believe there's a way to reference the different header #s, even if I have to do it manually. I'll keep playing around with it and post if I figure it out.

I ping'd our IT team to find out what version we have and if it truly is Confluence - thought it was with our company wrapper on it since we use mosty Atlassian solutions, but double checking. 

My apologies for the run around - turns out it's not Confluence. :/

No problem - maybe this is the time to move to Confluence :-)

Thank you for your feedback! :)

@Thomas Schlegel - Yes! Reading about Confluence and using what we're on now, I wish we were on it. :)
