I thought I could put square brackets on my confluence page by escaping the bracket...like \[ but, that just shows a \[ on the page. and if i do  two in a row, I get a task. I thought I could do two in a row and then back arrow to get between them - no. Is my only option to go into the source and edit?
thanks in advance
That still seems pretty hackish. That's not really a feature, you're simply breaking the buffer stream that the WYSIWYG logic is using. Atlassian ought to create a controlled escape mechanism, just to avoid the inevitable change in interpretation by the enduser OS/Browser.
@Kyle, Agreed, as Dale's solution does not work for me either. Even using <esc>, which was my first guess to get [text text], command-z still deletes everything I typed.
What did work was opening TextEdit, typing what i needed there, then copying/pasting it back to Confluence. :/
Also works is the suggestion below:
[<esc> text text \]
