The first problem is that the Panel macro scales out to accommodate the contents, so you have to limit the size of the panel:

  1. Add a Div macro
  2. Set the Styles field:

    width: npx; height: npx

     (where n=whatever size you want the panel to be)

  3. Add a Panel macro to the body of the Div macro

Now that the Panel is constrained, you can add a constrained box within it and tell it to use scrollbars when necessary:

  1. Add a Div macro to the body of the Panel macro
  2. Set the Styles field:

    width: npx; height: npx; overflow: auto

    (where the width is about 12px less than the panel div width)

  3. Add content to the Div macro within the Panel macro


NOTE: If your content is just text, there will only be a vertical scrollbar, but any kind media will have both vertical and horizontal scrollbars.

I did not find Div macro. Where can I find Div macro?

It's part of the free tools in Adaptavist's Content Formatting For Confluence.

 

This works but then messes up the final page. div inside a panel inside a div

Hi, my problem is not exactly the same as Thomas Wilborn's;  mine is to "keep element in view while scrolling".  In particular, I want to make my Table of Contents respond to scrolling events.  If you are interested, please read on:

  1. I found a piece of JQuery code here: http://www.wduffy.co.uk/blog/keep-element-in-view-while-scrolling-using-jquery/
  2. I applied the JQuery code to my Confluence (6.1) like this: https://www.screencast.com/t/qVWu8xXz
