I really do not like the new UI. It is trying to imitate the other "modern" wiki solutions. The classic confluence UI was for me perfect. An wiki with a bit more features, lightweight with some extras. Not word / sharepoint.
The main problem for me with the new UI is this.
But the main issue - I want to use _ALL_ of available screenspace in my article. We have _HUGE_ monitors. I want to use it!
So, we run self hosted. And I want to upgrade to the lastet proper confluence version, so I wonder at which version number did Atlassian change to the other UI. How long will confluence support the classic UI?
I really like confluence, the classic UI was really good! Some minor bugs. Fast to render, and fast to work in with the short-cuts.
But not with this new UI. Its a new product now. Its like sharepoint now. Slow and cramped.
Hello @Tor Stefa Lura !
I saw that you mentioned the fact that “So, we run self hosted” but your major issues seem to be pointed at the Confluence Cloud platform, not the Self-hosted one.
For example, in Confluence Cloud we can now create content by pressing C in our keyboard if shortcuts are enabled.
Here is a screenshot of it:
And here is our documentation on Shortcuts for the Confluence Cloud platform:
As @Manon Soubies-Camy mentioned, we can set the Editor to use our whole screen if we desire. Here is how:
I still have a question about “How long will confluence support the classic UI?” When you say classic UI, what exactly is meant by that?
