What happened to button to edit source "< >" on Confluence page editor

I stopped being able to see the little icon to edit the underlying source that looked like "< >" on the Confluence page editor. Anybody know how I can get that back?

I think it used to appear right next to the magnifying glass icon in the upper right of the Confluence page editor.

I used that occasionally to edit the underlying HTML-like source is when Confluence handled vertical whitespace in a way I didn't like.

I am using Confluence 5.10.8.

Check with your admin that you are still listed as an authorized user in the source editor console.

Hi Lincoln,

that Icon belongs to an app developed by Atlassian Labs called Confluence Source Editor. And as Bill already pointed out it can be restricted to specific user groups. With all that information you should be able to point your admin to the right solution (Enabling you to use it again! ;) ) very fast.
