How do I enable Text Select?

How do I turn on the text select option to create JIRA tickets from within Confluence by highlighting text? When I highlight text on a Product Requirements Page I do not see the controls for creating issues or comment/quote.

A previous posting referenced a "Text Select" option on a Profile's Settings, but I don't see that there either.

This is a new feature that has been added from 5.4 version. So, in order to use it you need to upgrade your Cofluence to 5.4 or higher.

This is the 5.4 release note

Hope this helps,


Yes - that definitely helped! Thanks Fabio.

Hello Rina,
