Image border, size, and linking in new editor

Deleted user October 29, 2019

I am just trying our the the new editor and can no longer find many of the past features that we use frequently. 

  • Is there still an option to put a border on an image?
  • Is there still an option to resize your image to your exact specifications? (Now you can drag and drop but only to a few different sizes) 
  • Is still there an option to make your images links?

The Atlassian docs say this is possible but still showing the old editor.

There is a feature comparison of the old vs. the new editor.

 

Is there still an option to put a border on an image?

"Image effects and annotations" is in the "short term backlog" and links to CONFCLOUD-67122

Is there still an option to resize your image to your exact specifications? (Now you can drag and drop but only to a few different sizes) 

You are correct, "grid" means you only get a few different sizes. The feature request to enable "pixels" is here: CONFCLOUD-67554 p2.PNG

 

Is still there an option to make your images links?

No. You can vote for it here: CONFCLOUD-65640

Thank you very much for the link and answers. Extremely helpful. I had been looking around the docs for something similar and coming up with nothing.  Much appreciated.

What a mess. And let me just share that the current method of "linking to headings" is completely insane. We are supposed to exit the editor, go to the published page, grab the link to the heading, go back into the editor, drop the link where we want it . . . AND DO THIS FOR EVERY LINK??? Omg, you are out of your minds.

The sizing listing says available but the issue says gathering interest. I could not find a way to edit image size to save my life when adding an image to Confluence just now. Can it be updated to reflect it's not working or point to the right issue that includes a link to documentation showing the new editor?

@Charisma Riley  it might be possible that an update since your post has resolved the issue, but I can tell you that I have the ability to use the Table of Contents Macro to do my anchoring and linking without having to go in and out of the editor:

What I have done to do links throughout a Confluence page within the new editor, depending on exactly how you want it to look, is use that TOC macro by each header and use the "Include Headings" and "Exclude Headings" functionality to call out what headings I do and do not want including within the quick jumps. If you want a "Back to the top" anchor functionality, you can put a Heading 7 "Back to Top" at the top of your page (and even hide it if you wanted) and then use the TOC macro and ONLY include Heading 7 to give you a "Back to Top" link by every Heading 1/2 in your longer pages. I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but just some methods I have used to do workarounds as well as get the absolute most out of the new editor experience as they continue to roll out new and great features!

The overall image handling in the "New Editor" is utterly broken to the point where using images is pretty much impossible. The comments on various linkes issues say it all!

How could that ever been released to the (paying) public?

Please Atlassian team fix this soon!

Agreed. The Atlassian value "Don't f%ck the customer" was totally forgotten in this Confluence release. It would be better for them to rollback than to make people wait through all of this "short term backlog" just to get to parity to what we had before. What is the value that was released here? I'm only feeling pain.

As we're waiting for the new image editor to be completed, I thought I'll share what we use for outlines/borders in the meantime.

Windows 10 received the new snipping tool, called "Snip & Sketch" a while ago. Open up Snip & Sketch, and click on the 3 dots at the bottom right, and then Settings. In Settings, scroll down until you find "Snip Outline". Turn that on, and choose the preferred color and thickness. 

This feature then draws an outline to all the images you snip. You can copy directly out of Snip & Sketch into Atlassian Confluence, with the outline/border maintained.

Thought this might help someone else as much as it helped me!

Thank you, I am also manually adding.  So annoying and still not as nice as the old "page-curl" borders.
