To edit a page:
- Navigate to and open the page you want to change.
- Click Edit.
- Make your changes, just as you would in Microsoft Word.
- To clear formatting, click the More icon ( ) and click Clear Formatting. Confluence clears all formatting in the selected paragraph. This is useful when Confluence adds unnecessary formatting tags (such as <span> tags) in the source.
- To edit the source, click the Source Editor icon (<>), located in the upper right corner of the page. This is useful in the following scenarios and others:
- To clear some formatting in a paragraph, but not all of it.
- To insert an image or table between steps, as described in Inserting Images or Tables in Numbered Lists.
- To insert an indented paragraph between steps (such as the "click Apply" statement below).
- To edit the file name of an existing image on the page.
- To add an exit disclaimer after an external link, as described in Marking Links as External to US Government.
When you are done editing the source, click Apply.
- If you intend to delete an excerpt or multi-excerpt, consider checking first where that content is in use. For instructions, refer to Finding Where Reused Content Appears.
- Consider describing the change in a change comment for future reference:
The comparison view is not clear about image changes, such as when you add or edit alt-text, so consider mentioning that in a change comment.
The comparison view is not clear about changes to the wiki page title, so consider mentioning that in a change comment.
- The comparison view is not clear about formatting changes, so consider describing the change in a change comment. For example, "Applied bullet formatting."
If you edit a page for a particular Jira ticket, consider mentioning that in a change comment.
- When you are done editing the page, click Save.
