      Description

      A note from Atlassian on the Excel macro

      There are some known issues with the Excel macro right now that impact the display of spreadsheets. They're the result of some infrastructure changes that we're making for the overall benefit of Confluence Cloud users. We really regret any negative consequences this release has caused, and realize that any explanation of trade-offs will be of little comfort when you rely on this macro's functionality.

      There unfortunately isn't a short-term fix for this issue, but we're investigating a better long-term solution for Excel and other Office files, and we'll update you when we have news to share. For further updates on this issue, please refer to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-54876
