Increase the width of the pagetree macro

Hi there - we are having some trouble trying to figure out how to increase the width of the pagetree macro.

We just added it to a brand new page on our brand new site on Cloud, however it is wrapping the text very early (see image below).

There is more than enough space for the text to not be wrapped (we aren't using columns or anything else).

What should we be doing?

(and thanks in advance 😎)

Try using the Children Display macro instead of Page Tree. That fixed the problem for me.

Wow, the first comment that comes up with a workaround that fits. Information should be added to the 'Workaround' section at the bug tracking page linked above (I left a comment there).

Thank you for sharing @Vikram Chhabra !

Having the same issue, but this works so far :-)

Hi all, 

After adding the macro and placing your cursor on it in edit mode, do you see at the bottom of the macro a menu that allows you to change its width to wide or full width?



New editor, cursor hovering over the macro does nothing.   If I click the macro, I get this:


If I click the edit pen icon I get this:



You can see here, it renders differently than in the preview.  It is contained inside a panel in this shot, but it's the same if I put the pagetree macro in the body of a fresh page by itself:


(It's worth noting that I cannot put borders on these images, caption them, or indent them, all of which I can do in the old (vastly superior) editor.)

same here, this renders a super ugly and unreadable page-tree. Especially since I have a tree that goes several levels deep, there is now no readable overview anymore of my tree.


No workaround found so far, though I did try a lot of things, even to capture the plugin in a wide table, no success so far.

Is there a JIRA issue logged for this already ?

@Avinoam Is your team working on this issue? 

Same issue here.  This just looks silly....

BTW... To see just how silly it looks, scroll horizontally.  ;-)

I have the same problem, it seems this error is still

We also have the same problem. It seems to be related to the 'new' editor. We also have pages written in the 'old' editor that do not have this problem.

When you don't have to many sublevels, you might use the 'children display' macro as a workaround

Note, making the page full-width, the macro expands in the edit view to full width as well, but upon publishing is still rendered with the same, incredibly small width.

Same issue, but the workaround from @Vikram Chhabra is doing its job so far.

Try using the Children Display macro instead of Page Tree.

Having the same problem. I hope we find a workaround.

Same problem here - old editor works fine, new editor as OP describes.

Same issue here, 3 words then return. Any clue ? Thanks

Second week into using Confluence, and stupid issues like this have me wondering if we've made a mistake. The number of bugs and weird limitations I've come across is surprisingly high considering I've done little more than create content and use Page Tree macros.

Performance has also been disappointing, I regularly have a 5-30 second delay after clicking publish :(

I have the same issue as well.
