Embedd diagram, default to a specific tab

We are using the embed macro. We have a diagram with multiple tabs and would like to display three different tabs on out confluence page. So we included three times the macro linking to the url of the diagram file, while embedding we can chose the tab, however after it always displays the first tab. We are aware, that you can navigate to the other tabs / pages, however we would like to explicitly default each of the three macros to a specific tab / page. Is there a parameter how we can achieve that?

Could you take a look at the video I recorded for you please and tell me if this is what you are trying to achieve.

I use Chrome Version 86.0.4240.198 (Official Build) (64-bit), on Confluence Cloud version 13.9.7 and it is working for me.


Kind regards,


Hi Marija,

It is impossible to watch this video, unless you sign up for a paid Vimeo subscription. 

Could you please post the solution here...? Thank you. 

Select the page you want before saving the macro in Current Diagram tab

Thank you for your response, @Mohamed Mohamedin.

In my experience, this only works once for new pages (= tabs within the embedded Drawio file). But you cannot open an existing embedded Drawio file, select a new default tab, save and see it updated in the Confluence page. I note that I edit the Drawio file via the pen icon in the upper-left corner. 

I do not know what 'macro' means in context of Drawio or Confluence. Thanks. 

You can edit the macro and select the new page then save or use the settings icon in the viewer and check "Current Viewer State"

By macro I mean a diagram in a page, this is the name Confluence use for any added feature to a page.
