Utilsing AUI Tab Macro's or Navitabs


Please can someone help me regarding the usage of tab macro's.   I've created a template at the moment that utilises the Deck of Cards Macro - this allows me to create tabs horizontal at the top of my page and allows the user to change views by selecting each tab.   However, when I select the edit option to edit the page in Confluence, it doesn't appear user friendly and users have to scroll to the relevant card label to edit the content on that tab.   Is there a more efficient way to edit an individual tab?  If I were to upgrade our licence to utilise the AUI Tab Macro or the Navitabs - would this resolve my issue? Or do I need some other additional plugin.  Please can someone help me with this?  Thanks  Vanessa

No matter which macro you use you will still get the same look in edit mode. That is how the Confluence editor works. It puts in placeholders for macros, but does not render them as they would look when viewing the page. Unless you need one of the special features that the navitabs aDD-ON has I would recommend the Spectrum Formatting Macros. Just like all the other tab macros in Confluence(including Navitabs) it utilizes Atlassian's AUI Tab API, but it is free as opposed to Navitabs.

Um, Spectrum Formatting Macros aren't free. Price starts at $1 per user, which drops at 250+ users. Maybe it was once free perhaps?

They just recently made it a paid add-on.
