Adding to Shannon's reply, I would like to point out this handy plugin for Cloud: Source Editor for Confluence I use it all the time to paste exact content from one page to another.


When I have several sections on a page, I can only select one by one. I don't how to select several of them.


@Ann Worley : thanks for you help.

Hi Aurelie,

You can select all at once using your CMD+A shortcut (or CTRL+A on Windows, I believe). This will select ALL sections.  Otherwise, if you need to select a few that are apart then this is where I said you might need to select them one at a time.

I would give the add-on that Ann mentioned a try and see if you're able to select them more quickly with that option.

Kind Regards,

Hi Aurelie,

It's possible to select the sections you require and copy and paste those into a new page in Confluence. 

Can you explain a bit more exactly what you need to do? If the sections aren't together, then you'd need to select them one at a time and paste them in.

Also, you could copy the page and then remove the sections you do not need.

Kind Regards,

Same problem as @Aurelie Pilettehere. We have certain cases where users have to copy the whole content of a page containing some sections into an existing (other) page. One example is major refactoring of a page but still the same content, audience. One does not want to loose statistics, watches etc. that are bound to the existing page. So pasting the whole content as a new version is the preferred option.

Source code editor is not available to all users on our platforms for good reasons.

Source code editor, while still existing in the marketplace, qualifies as unsupported ( @Ann Worley )

CTRL+A shortcut on Windows (10), Chrome 68, confluence 6.4.3 server; same with 6.10.1 without any plugins:  only selects the current section, not all sections / complete content. So @Shannon Spaniol 's system works differently or there is some misunderstanding!?

Hi @Karsten PE,

To answer your concerns, this thread was regarding Confluence Cloud as it was in November 2017.

So it is likely that my system was working differently than yours at the time.

It appears you're referring to the server version as well, which is developed separately from Cloud.

My recommendation would be to raise a new thread that's more specific to Server versions of Confluence so we can come up with a more suitable solution for your needs and Confluence version.

Editing to add the current feature request for this:

The workaround stands to use the Source Editor add-on or to edit and copy content using WebDAV.



Additionally - the "unsupported" tag refers to the fact that Atlassian support doesn't support that particular add-on. Generally you'll want to reach out to the add-on provider if support is being offered.

It does not mean that it will not work with the given Confluence version. For this, please check the 'supported versions' under the title:

I hope that's clear, but if you have any questions please let us know!
