How do I use Markdown if at all for authoring Confluence content?
I ask because a web search shows a number of articles and pieces of documentation that indicate one can use Markdown directly in Confluence via Insert > Markdown. However, I don't have that option. My Confluence insert drop-down offers many choices, but Markdown isn't one of them. See the attached screenshot.
What do you all recommend?
To insert markdown in the Legacy editor:
As with wiki markup, Confluence Cloud will convert your markdown to the rich text editor format. You will not be able to edit your content using markdown.
- Choose Insert > Markup.
- Select Markdown.
- Type or paste your text - the preview will show you how it will appear on your page.
- Choose Insert.
If you paste Markdown into Confluence editor, it will automatically convert to Confluence format. So if you want to edit, you can no more use Markdown after pasting.
As an alternative option, we recently released an app: Markdown for Confluence - Native Markdown Editor
With this app, you can create and edit Confluence pages with Markdown. So it allows pasting Markdown and editing them afterward using Markdown.
Hope this app will be helpful. Let us know if you have any feedback.
