Indent Buttons Disabled for Text Blocks Edited

Operating System: Windows 10 Home

Browsers: Firefox 57, Chrome 63


The indent buttons are disabled for text blocks as of 2018-01-05.

I know this is a bug, because it works in previous versions.


It works as usual for number and bullet lists.

Hi Jason,

Indeed this was recently disabled in an update to Cloud Confluence.

Have a look at this case for the reasoning and please use it to send your feedback to our developers:

Please let them know your usage case and any other information you'd like to provide them.

That case does not talk about the reasoning behind the change.

Apologies, David! It appears it is due to the permissions on the ticket. However, it was an effort to fix some compatibility issues.

My recommendation is to watch the issue in case there are further public updates and comment with your feedback directly on that ticket.
