Is Content Formatting Macros (mostly) free or not?

The plugin claims this:


"The Content Formatting plugin is free to use and does not require a license. Optionally upgrade to the Premium version by clicking the 'Buy Now' button and gain access to a range of macros that let you add rich Atlassian Design Guidelines compliant elements to your wiki pages"


but it keeps complaining about missing license.

Hi @Erkki Aalto,


Content Formatting Macros is free and doesn't require a license to use the free macros.
However, from Content Formatting Macros 4.0.1 version we added some Premium Macros that do require a license to be used, so you only would need a license if you are interested in any of the new Premium macros, that require a license to be used, that could be acquired through Atlassian, otherwise it could remain unlicensed.
Please check the lists of Free Macros here
and Premium Macros here

Now that you have changed this to a completely paid plugin, those of us who were using the free version plugin are in quite a bind. Either pay up or have a bunch of broken pages. Anything you can do to help us out with initial pricing?

Do all of the macros ship in the same distribution? So a user could attempt to use one of the Premium Macros even though it hasn't been paid for?

Hi @James Roberts,

If a user tries to use the Premium Macros without license, they will see Licensing errors.
