Title and Text

Confluence, by design, is an exceptional collaborative workspace. However, its default options for text formatting can be somewhat limiting, especially when trying to highlight or differentiate content in meaningful ways.

How to use

Please follow these steps to insert an Announcements macro on a Confluence page:

  1. Navigate to the Confluence page you wish to edit or create a new page.

  2. Once in edit mode, either click the plus icon in the navigation bar (insert elements) or press '/' on your keyboard to bring up the macro list.

  3. Type "Optics" in the search bar, then choose the Announcements macro from the options displayed.

When the configuration dialog opens, it guides you through customizing your button, with a live preview showing changes in real-time. Once you're satisfied, click Save to add the button to your Confluence page. If you decide not to proceed, clicking Cancel will cancel the setup without inserting the macro.

Layout structure

Use the Layout structure option to enable/disable overline, title, line and text. By default, all elements are enabled.
