confluence is not able to create a preview, if the file (eg. excel-file - 4,5 Mbyte) is too great. Smaller files are possible.
How can i increase the preview size?
Or is it a limitation of databaase?
Thanks and best regards,
Hello there, @reinhard_rossmy_polizei_bayern_de ! Great to have you share with our community.
As I understand, your instance is having trouble to create previews of excel files that exceed a certain size. There are a few things that we could try! Here we go:
- Copy the file and rename it. Check if uploading the copied version yields any different results.
- If the copy yields the same results, try reducing the number of rows in the table. The number should match one of the tables that actually generate a preview in Confluence
- Try another browser
- Try the current browser’s incognito mode
I would like to ask you a few questions for clarification, Reinhard. Would that work for you? Here are my questions:
- Is this affecting other types of files as well? If yes, which types?
- Are there any errors thrown when you try to preview the excel file?
- What exactly displays when you try to use the attachment preview?
- Is the affected file (or files) of the .xls or .xlsx type (or both)?
Let us hear from you, Reinhard! Looking forward to your reply.
