can I still add an anchor within a confluence page?

the usual instructions are to choose the anchor link in the confluence content section of the select macro dialog. however, no such anchor link is there. can anyone tell me how to add an anchor?

Hi Jonathan,

Does the link here help:

It mentions that, in the new editor, the anchor macro has been replaced by linkable headings.

To create a link to a specific section on a page:

  • Hover over a section title when viewing a page.
  • Click the link icon that appears to the left of the section title to copy it.
  • Insert the link in another page to create a link that goes to that part of the page.


Well, after doing that the link does go to the url I pasted, but does not immediately scroll that page so that the section is visible. However, it did scroll after a two second pause. Frustrating but what the hey I can live with it. That said, though, could you eliminate the pause?

I’m just a community member / user like you. I don’t work for Atlassian so I can’t help with the pause part. is the place to go if you want to raise a support request with Atlassian on this.
