Why can't I add cut/paste data to an expand widget?

Up until recently, I could

- edit page

- cut data (text) from the page

- past that data (text) into to an expand widget


As of about 2 weeks ago, when moving the cursor into the expand widget and doing "paste" <ctrl-v>, the data never gets added.

This is happening to my team as well. When you paste inside the expandable section, it actually pastes OUTSIDE of it.

Welcome to the void :)

Hi @Buratt, Scott ,

Welcome to Atlassian community.

We have had some bug in this area. Are you referring to the below behaviour?


Srinath T

@Srinatha T, this is not the same issue.

I have previously placed "expand" macros into a table and have previously cut/paste content into the macro

Now, if I try to add adding additional cut/paste (<ctl-x>/<ctl-v>) content into the "expand" macro, the content does not get added.

@Buratt, Scott , Is the behaviour same as CONFSERVER-25880  ?



Srinath T

As I mentioned prior @Srinatha T , it is not the same behavior as CONFSERVER-25880
