I find this really annoying. There has always been a difference between tabbing and indenting. Using tab to get indenting means I am relearning what those things mean for one application. It's not life changing but I created a document, I selected multiple paragraphs and looked for the indent button on the toolbar. Then went hunting in all the mores and ...s then went hunting on the Internet. Oh, look, you can tab. Tab now indents that entire paragraph. Unlike every other application since the beginning of time where tab only indents the first line of that paragraph. Which is apparently something I can no longer do in an application that is essentially an editor.
So now, to indent all the paragraphs in that section, I am tabbing each one of them. I literally just hit tab for 20 different paragraphs for just the first section of my document.
Ah ha. I have now realised that I can select all the paragraphs and then hit tab. Gosh, this is fun. I really wanted to waste this time today.
Not yet, but the new editor is completely eliminating indents and I just received an email that we are going to be forced to convert over in the coming weeks. It is just a disaster for us as we make extensive use of indents on virtually every page for our code documentation and have for years. I'm at a loss for what we will do.
I'm familiar with the editor from JIRA, which never had indents, which we find clunky, but manageable for the kinds of simple issues we list in JIRA. In Confluence, it will just kill us.
And further off topic, the new colors make it more difficult to distinguish things, especially for those with any color blindness. The palate doesn't even have a plain red, blue and green.
But we can live with bad colors. The indents is another matter.
