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 It's been replaced by a number of specific panel macros such as Info panel, Error panel, and so on.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

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!

In new editor Panel Macro is missing!
Its open a case here to bring him back, so please vote to bring back the Panel Macro:

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

Voted! thanks Marius!

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