Where did the Panel Macro go?

Hi Heidi,

If your site has the new Confluence Cloud editor, the Panel Macro is gone. It's been replaced by a number of specific panel macros such as Info panel, Error panel, and so on. (I've attached a screenshot below of the choices available.)

There's an open request for Atlassian to Bring back the original panel macro feature if you'd like to add your vote and comments.

Best wishes,
Sharon

It does not appear that you can add a table to one of those panels.  Is that right?

Advanced Panelboxes does support the insertion of tables and other macros.

If you are using cloud: Panel Macro is still available in my instance. Maybe try to clear your cache or try to log off and on again :)

Same for Server... Panel Macro still available in the latest version.

The rather good and detailed e-learning skillbuilder from Atlassian University called Confluence Content Management (https://training.atlassian.com/confluence-content-management) recommends using the old Panel macro. In fact, in that e-leaning course Atlassian states that the old Panel macro is key to creating ordered pages that are easy to read and maintain.

Really makes you wonder why they removed a macro they themselves believe was very important. On a side note it is also peculiar that the e-learning course has not been updated.

Panel macro really added a lot of value for us. I see dozens of people around here that have the same feeling. I hope this helps to bring this macro back!

There is also a slightly older issue logged asking to bring back the panel macro: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-66752

Voted on this one too - I see it has about 20 more comments... I really hope they bring this back.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-67825

Voted! thanks Marius!

Panel macro has gone. It has not been replaced by anything.

The new panel are nothing like the panel macro, for instance, you cannot add another macro inside that them. (For instance a table of contents.)

Using Atlassian products has become so frustrating.

That's all well and good. But previously we could do this for FREE!

Not to mention whole pages and page templates that still rely on the old macro, and the new templates that can't use it, leading to ugly and confusing spaces.

Again, working with Atlassian products is frustrating.

I agree, i used it allot also! Made things easier for us. 

The replacement is not really very helpful since it's not doing the same function. 

 

Very bad move in my opinion!
