We've switched from our own instance to the cloud version, and the default text layout with the new editor wastes huge(!) amounts of space - I get only half the text on a page as I used to. It feels wasteful and annoying - and scrolling has doubled!
Are there any options for a page to use a more sensible layout?
Hi Andrew, Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
This is how Atlassian deals with responsive pages in order to make it fit any screen size. There are different opinions about this.
You can change the width of the page by clicking the icon with the arrow.
Please read Atlassian's answer on this post about this topic. There's also a way to set a default setting for the whole Confluence instance. CONFCLOUD-67503
Apologies for not being clear enough (mea culpa)
I meant the vertical spacing.
For instance bullets are twice as far apart as before (literally)
Which is as annoying as the spacing I've used here! :-)
I think it's the new editor vs. the old. My pages are now twice as long as before and look ugly (imo)
Oh right vertical spacing :-)
Do you happen to have a screenshot so we can see an example?
I haven't been annoyed by vertical spacing so far. Here is an example I quickly created. Is the vertical spacing similar on your pages? Just want to be sure you're not facing a bug or other odd behavior.
The amount of whitespace before a Heading can be seen as a bit much. But it does not annoy me to be honest.
Phew, Atlassian Team 2021 blew by. With dozens of demos and a handful of keynotes, you may have missed some of the awesome Confluence Cloud sessions. Don't' worry, you can watch them all here or on Y...
