Why does Confluence use class="auto-cursor-target"

Bill_Bailey Community Leader Jun 27, 2019

This is more of a curiosity.

I often have to edit the storage code for a page to clean up various items. I noticed awhile back that the following code would appear, I guess as a spacer around some objects?

 <p class="auto-cursor-target">

It seems the be filtered out when the page is displayed. Does anyone know why Confluence is inserting this code?

I believe it has something to do with collaborative editing as I have only seen that when Synchrony is turned on.

That could be. I know I can delete them, but they are reinserted. The only reason I care is it creates extra phantom space in the editor view that causes me to think it is empty p tags or something like this:


auto-cursor-target is like a virus. Once it gets into your page is messes up the formatting and it is very hard to get rid of
