Instead of having the ... More Actions menu, is it possible to replace it with buttons that would perform the same actions in fewer clicks. For instance, replace "Export to PDF" option with a customizable button that performs the same PDF export process (performing all underlying PDF Stylesheet options).
Is such a thing even possible in Confluence? Surely others have thought of this before with some degree of success.
Old versions of Confluence did it. But the UI started to take up too much space as the list got longer, so it was moved into a button.
It should be possible by hacking the css a lot, but that is a core code change.
I've hid all the buttons/actions under the More Actions menu except Export to PDF. No other options are visible to the end-user at any given time.
All I am trying to do is change the Export to PDF option into a single-click button. Thus, there would never be any spatial issues.
It's very hard to not judge it when someone hides useful things.
Glad you managed to hack it in though.
I do have a couple of minor things you'll want to think about quickly. I take it there's no problem being unsupported, and you don't mind that the users can still take the actions, you've just slowed them down.
Usefullness of things is determined by seeing the bigger picture and comprehending corporate privacy policies in this day and age.
There is no hack involved.
Moreover, users are not slowed down but it greatly speeds up the process. I don't think Confluence would ever support user created HTML ; therefore, "unsupported" is a non-issue.
You've got a couple of problems with your corporate policies then. The first one is that they're probably wrong, but that's not a Confluence discussion, so we can ignore that.
The more important one is that I suspect you may have misunderstood what you've done slightly. Taking the options off the menu just hides them.
Your users can still perform the actions. All you've done is obscured them a little.
