Unable to use PDF macro to display pdf files from a different source page in confluence Edited

We are using cloud version of Confluence and the problem we are facing is as below. We have uploaded some pdf documents on a single confluence page (say page 'Repo'). We then have other pages where we want to display selected pdf documents  from the Repo page. We tried using the pdf macro and gave reference to Repo page. It lists the available pdf documents but we cannot Save this to make these documents available on the target pages.

Business case is we store results (as pdf) of testing performed for our releases on Repo page. We have separate pages for each release where we want to reference to the appropriate result pdf.

Hello Meghanand,

Thank you for bringing this to us.

I believe you may be experiencing this on the new Confluence editor You'll know if you're on the new editor because your Publish button is on the top right-hand corner of the page.

In the new editor, it's not possible to embed media from other pages. You can see more information about this on the Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap page.

According to this, while it's not available in the new editor, we are gathering more information on the amount of usage of this feature from people who use Confluence.

You can help with that by clicking Vote for this issue on the linked feature request:

  • CONFCLOUD-65344 Allow adding attachments from a page or space on Fabric editor

Thank you for your help, and let me know if you have any questions about that!



Thanks @Shannon Spaniol and yes we are using the new editor.
