I've recently been using the new editing experience and I love it, but I can't find a way to display an attached file (jpg, png etc.) as link which is easily done in the old editor.
I'd love to keep using the new editor, but the 'display file as link' feature is integral to the way I use Confluence.
Is there a way of doing this in the new editor or is it not possible?
I'd be super grateful for any insight or answers.
Thanks so much in advance,
Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you.
I recently raised a feature request about this:
In the meantime, you'll need to use the Attachments macro in order to obtain the URL of the attachment. Then you can link text to that by pasting the link into the Link Macro.
Please vote on the feature request above to show that you'd like to see this feature return to Confluence. You will automatically be added to the list of watchers so you can receive updates of any progress.
Hello there, Barry, and Christian. Thank you for all of this feedback.
As of recently, this feature is now listed on our roadmap page below:
We are still currently gathering interest on this, but I wanted to share that page with you as there are likely other features you're missing and you'd like to know the status of.
I would also encourage you to schedule some 1:1 time with our Confluence Product Manager in their calendar. It can help us to get more feedback such as yours for how we can best improve the new editor to meet your requirements.
Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week.
It's not really an 'improvement' to simply provide the same functionality as the previous version.
This disrupts the entire structure of the wiki that I've been building for my team for the past year. Atlassian has created a load of work for me and, I expect, many others.
This feature is now in our short-term roadmap and we've begun the early stages of implementing this on the new editor.
Hi all, Confluence editor PM here. We are in the early stages of exploring how to show an attachment thumbnail as a link. Bringing this functionality to the new editor is on our short-term roadmap. We’ll provide updates on this ticket as we progress the work.
Thanks for all the feedback.
Thank you again for your patience while we get the new editor up-to-par with the features of the legacy editor.
As before, if you require the legacy editor and aren't able to use it on your Cloud site, please contact the Confluence Cloud Support Team and we can help you to access the legacy editor.
I have the same problem with the lack of functionalities in the new edit preview form mentioned above. Please for update about the progress.
Our organisation recently expanded Confluence account and now we are getting confused with these malfunctions. Unfortunately I am the admin of the site and I have to calm others.
Whatever "improvement" you make keep the option to revert it back to the old ones.
I find this quite remarkable.
I fully understand that the product needs to change and adapt, yet seeing yet another feature that is generally used in busier and more complex set up not implemented right away when the new editor was rolled out makes one wonder as to who the target audience really is.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
