How to revert to legacy editor

I moved to the new editor, following the nudge. But after moving to new editor, i realized that editing is too slow. When I type a word the letters appear in slow motion on the page. This totally beats the purpose. Now I am looking to move back to the old editor & unable to find the option. 

The help says it possible. But does not state how

You can contact support to have the old editor enabled on your instance.

See the comment on CONFCLOUD-65695 for more details: 

Hi all,


Thanks for all the feedback on this ticket. Given the amount of requests we've started to explore what a potential quick win may look like to re-introduce this. That being said, we still can't guarantee a time frame for this - we will make sure to update this ticket as we know more on our end.

In the meantime, if you have the legacy template available - which most of you should have - you can keep using that to create new pages and still keep using this feature. If you don't have that template, you can reach out to support and we'll be happy to enable it for you.


Well. I do have legacy template. I can create a new page with legacy template and it opens old editor. No issues.


But I had opened an old page, which had lot of content. Wanted to try the new editor and moved to new editor. I am not able to work on this page. (please note this is not a page. it is a living document which I need to actively work on). I can not delete and create a new page with old template - cause this is a page that is tracked.


And I am trying to type on this and it is dead slow. I see what ever I type appear in slow motion on the new editor. 

I need to conver this back to new editor. Else my productivity and core work is affected. I hope am making my "user perspective" clear here.

Excuse me if am coming across quite harsh. 
The core use case of confluence is to create content using an editor. If that editor is too slow isnt that an issue to even roll it out 

Well even if it is released, shouldnt there be a appropriate roll back plan when the core feature is affected ?

I am just a community member trying to help other community members out.  Please submit a support ticket and see if Atlassian can rectify this issue for you.

Thanks. I was under the impression that the responses was from product support.

Thanks for helping out

You are kidding.  A response from support?
