Wiki Markup is broken


Just started using Confluence and using asterisks around some text makes it italic, and the header markup features do absolutely nothing if using.

h1. Example

or *bold*

_italics_, for example, does work. 

-Lists also seem to work.

Am I missing something? Driving me mad!

Hi @Dan Christovic

You're likely using the new editor, which has a new set of keyboard shortcuts.

To view these, in the edit page there is a "?" button in the lower-left corner. Press this and select "Editing Keyboard Shortcuts"

This will show you the new options, such as **Bold** for bold.

You can also open the keyboard shortcuts using Cmnd + / on a Mac - your keyboard shortcuts will show the option based on your OS type - so will have a different option for Windows.

It will look like this:

Oh great! More github-style, that's fantastic. Is the documentation going to be updated at some point?

I would say so - if you look at this page for example, there's already details around auto-complete in the new editor :)

There are a lot of articles, blogs, etc which cover these topics - you can check at the bottom of a page when it was last modified to see how up to date it is :). For example the page I linked above was last updated on 03/01/2020.


Ah, I see. 

That's cool, didn't find it since I was searching for 'markdown confluence' into Google. Doesn't bring up that page that you linked.


That's great stuff, though, thanks for the incredibly quick response times here!

Is it possible to create a table with just mark up?

I can't get this to work.

|| x || y ||
| a | b |  

Can't seem to find the "markup" option anywhere.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Sebastian De Rossi 

Not that I've seen in Confluence; what's the need to use mark-up as opposed to just adding a table to the page?


Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ 
The reason is we have a application that exports MD data. It would be awesome to just copy and paste that MD table on the Confluence page. It's a big data set, it would be quicker just to replace the table and not update individual cells with new information.

Hi @Sebastian De Rossi 

I don't believe this is possible in the new editor; see this comment on another similar question.

There is a suggestion to add full markdown support to the new editor, vote/follow CONFCLOUD-68137
