unable to make instructional text


I'm trying to create a template, but are unable to make an instructional text as described here:

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.

You can also change the placeholder type from Text to either:

  • User mention – Opens the user mention dialog.
  • Jira Macro – Opens a dialog that allows you to create a new Jira issue, or search for one or more Jira issues to include on the page.

I'm unable to locate Template in the above text, I can't find it anyware. My toolbar looks like this:


Can anybody please guide me in the right direction, I have been abe to make templates before the new editor was introduced?
