I have edit permissions for a page but can't see the Edit button.

I have edit permissions for a page but can't see the Edit button. How can i get access to edit? The page owner gave me view permissions first and that worked instantly, I urgently need the edit access too.

You may not have edit permission for the space.

I have the similar issue. This started a few days ago.

I can no longer edit in chrome. But I can edit in Firefox.

Permissions are correct and have not been changed recently.

What if I should only be allowed permission to edit that one page within the space?

Jonathan,

So, if I don't have edit permission for a space, how is it I can be granted permission to edit a page in that space?  Is that a bug or is there some rationale? Thanks.

Same issue appearing for me as well. I am using Confluence Cloud and edit button along with other options[start/stop watching, share this page with others and ...] on top right of a page were appearing till yesterday. Unable to find it on any of the pages. But edit button is visible in Overview section of the Space but not on any of the pages in that space. I have checked the Permissions and they are fine. I am the creator of the page and edit button should be visible to me atleast. 


I am using Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)
