Hi @nelzon, I can help you out here.

First, it makes it way easier for me personally if you ask a new question, instead of asking a question in an answer on an existing question.

Secondly, welcome to Atlassian Answers. This is a user-based forum for Atlassian products and I do not work for Atlassian.

Anyway, you're seeing that screen because you added variables to the template. Remove the variables and you won't see that screen anymore. I see what you're trying to do but Confluence doesn't let you make templates like you've done it, you should use instructional text instead: Cloud: Creating a Template - Instructional Text

Instructional text is placeholder content in a template, and is only visible while you're editing the page. Use it to give guidance to whoever is creating a page from the template.

To insert instructional text:

  1. Choose Template > Instructional Text in the toolbar
  2. Type in your instructional text (for example, Insert an image of the interface here.)

Instructional text appears in italics with a shaded background, to distinguish it from normal paragraph text.
