Status Macro not displaying the full text


I am using the status macro in my pages but it seems that if my text has more than 7 characters, the full text is not displayed instead three dots (...) are displayed. How do I make it to display the whole text when using the Status macro?

Hi Roberta,

The title of the macro will be truncated in the editor, but the published page should display the full text.  I just tested this on my instance of Confluence Server.



Published page:


It's possible this could be affected by your global CSS stylesheet.

Good luck!

Thank you, Jared. I will check with my IT dept. I don’t have access to the CSS stylesheet.

Hello @Roberta ,

If you work a lot with custom statuses across your pages, you can enjoy working with Handy Macros for Confluence. Use Handy Status to switch statuses without editing, track status history, and configure status sets. You can customize the Handy Status look to suit your needs.
