Hi Pablo,

This looks like a feature of recent updates to the cloud editor. For more information, see: Confluence Editing Improvements.

I hope this helps!

If you know that you want all your new pages to default to full-width, you can modify your editor settings.

  1. Click your profile photo in the global navigation, and click Settings from the pop-up menu.  The Settings tab appears.
  2. Click Editor under Your Settings.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Select the Enable full-width as the default for new pages check box.
  5. Click Submit.

Hi Pablo,

Text alignment can be changed in the editor (I use Confluence Server so this may look slightly different for you):


The text layout in your screenshot looks like it's in 2 columns.  If that's the case, then you'll want to remove the column formatting for that section (or move your content to the left column) to get the text formatting you want.

Good luck!
