      Status Update 3 Feb 2022

      👋 Hi - I’m a Divya Sriram, a Product Manager that works on the editor team. Thanks a lot for your feedback. As we continue to improve the editing experience, it's important to understand use cases like this. This feature is not in our short-term roadmap, but we will work to see if it makes sense if to move this feature into our future roadmaps.

      We will keep you updated along the way.

      Thank you,


      There has been a passionate community of people in the Atlassian Community that has been making a request for this feature for 4 years now. Perhaps there is already a ticket in Jira here but obviously Atlassian seems to be out of touch with these individuals therefore I have opened a duplicate ticket. It would seem to me that this sort of feature could be whipped up in short order and appease community of individuals that are openly expressing their frustrations towards Atlassian.  What does it take to get the ear of Atlassian?

      User Story

      As a user in the editor of a Confluence page
      I would like to have a control to set the background color of text
      So that I do not need to read 4 years of help support suggestions; try numerous hacks; and be forced to buy & install plugins to do a simple style change to my text

      Acceptance Criteria

      Given that a user is in the Confluence page edit mode
      And has selected some text

      When clicking on a background color control in the palette
      And choosing yellow

      Then the background of the text just magically turns yellow
      And the user can burn up their 5x7 cheat sheet for setting the background color
