Two spaces displaying different navigations: why?


I'm new to Confluence (joined the trial today).

So far I created two spaces

1) Global
2) Blank

Global was set up automatically when I joined filled with sample information, Blank set up by myself (using Blank theme) where I try to replicate the look of Global.

So far so good, however: the top navigation bar looks different in the two spaces

In "Global" I can choose "{} Markup" from "+", in "Blank" I can't. Even when choosing "... View more" in "Blank" I can't see "{} Markup"


Why are they different? What can I do to see "{} Markup" in "Blank" too?

Unfortunately, wiki markup is not in the new editor though.

See this Roadmap page for feature comparison and you can vote on the features you want (links on that page to Jira issues):

Thank you very much for your answer Carolyn. I really don't get why atlassian would remove such a feature which gave many more option to customise Macros.
