Links to headings end up too low down the page

erik-foxcroft March 8, 2024

When I create a link to a heading, it takes me to a point a few lines below the heading, which is confusing for readers as the heading is not visible, and the relevant lines may be above the top of the page in the view they land on.

I have noticed this recently and I am sure it used to show the heading at the top of the page, but I do not know when this changed.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour and do you know how to fix it?

@erik-foxcroft I just tried this out on a few of my pages and was about to tell you that I'm not seeing this issue in my space, until I did. So, I see this happening with 2 of my links (so far), but not for several others that I tried.

Are the ones where you are seeing the issue ones which were created recently?

Now that you mention it, yes, they are ones I've added in the last week or so. My older links seem to be working fine.

I have tracked down some old links now, but they are as bad as the new ones

Hi @erik-foxcroft I took a quick look at Atlassian's Jira Site and I think CONFCLOUD-77415 is your issue or else it's darn close.

Feel free to vote for an watch it for updates.  It looks relatively new.

It is similar, but I am getting several lines skipped.  I have added a note to that issue as well.  It looks as though this issue may have arisen quite recently
