Confluence magic shortcuts

Confluence: The collaboration tool that serves the need of product documentation, Knowledge base, project planning activities or for blogging.

 

You will start enjoying the confluence tool, if you try your hands with keyboard shortcuts.

 

Okay, so how will I access the short cut's menu?

 

In the confluence home page, simply click on Shift+? to launch the short cuts window.

Atlassian has classified the shortcuts in 3 categories:

  • General – Global, page and blog post shortcuts.

  • Editor – Text editing and formatting shortcuts that apply to the legacy editor.

  • Editor Autoformatting – Wiki mark up and autoformatting shortcuts that apply to the legacy editor.

 

Here's an overview of all category shortcuts in the latest confluence version.

Hi @G subramanyam do you know the shortcut on a mac to add an attachment? I can't add an attachment using Ctrl + M on Confluence on my mac using this, but most of the others work. Thank you !

Hi @Tara Kuhner thank you for checking my article.

I'm familiar with Windows systems and haven't used Mac. 

Hi @Monique vdB would you be able to help with Mac Confluence shortcuts or resources please.

Any hotkey for indent/outdent? I tend to do a lot of this when creating bullet/numbered lists. Really breaks up the flow to grab the mouse and click those buttons over and over. Thanks!
