Preview documents in confluence

I want to do few things, 

How can I copy past the visio diagram in a page?

How can I add a sharepoint link in confluence?

I tried adding the link but when I click it doesnt open the file instead it opens the save as window, i want it to open as soon as click on the link.

I believe you are trying to use the View File Macro. That will only work with files attached to the page/space.

I cannot find View file macro in the macro list, I believe this macro is removed in the newer version of confluence.

Displaying an Office or PDF Document in Confluence

To display an Office or PDF document in a page, use one of the following View File macros in the macro browser:

  • Office Excel
  • Office PowerPoint
  • Office Word
  • PDF

Yes, but mine is a visio file. Also, this file resided in sharepoint that keeps changing, I wanted to add a link in confluence page and when I click it would open the visio file. It this doesn't work then I want to just copy paste the content of the file directly on the page but nothing seem to be working.

When I copy paste the diagram from visio to confluence, it messes up the diagram.

We don't have this add-on, so there is no other option? I wish the sharepoint link attachment would work.
