We just upgraded from Confluence 2.7.1 to 4.1.9.
I see we can still insert wiki markup but is there a way to view a page as raw wiki markup?
We like to copy raw wiki markup out of confluence and paste in into other editors. From what I have read and googled It does not seem we can take an already created page and view as raw wiki markup?
there are a lot of theads and discussions here about that. Look here for example: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/21735/occupy-confluence-markup-provide-a-wysiwyg-xhtml-markup-editor-to-edit-the-markup-source-of-confluence-4-wiki-pages
You can view the raw wiki markup for a page by clicking Tools -> View Storage Format, but you cannot do a lot with this as it just shows you the new XML format.
What you may be interested in is the Confluence Source Editor plugin - https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.editor.confluence-source-editor - which allows you to edit the raw storage format using the syntax documented at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Storage+Format
You may also be interested in Atlassian's statement on the feedback of the 4.x editor at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+4.0+Editor+-+Customer+Feedback and you have an opportunity to contribute to the specification of an improved editor at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Specification+-+Confluence+Advanced+Editor
If you're a heavy wiki markup user the situation is not great at the moment, but it is getting better.
Hope that helps?
