    Description

      Status Update 18 April 2021

      We are planning on shipping new capabilities to the panel macro soon to improve your experience with Panels. You will be able to choose any colour from our colour palette instead of the predefined ones, you will be able to remove the panel icon altogether or add different/custom icons “emojis” to the panel other than the predefined ones.

      Thanks,
      Yousef

      As we're working through this feature and others, we wanted to address a lot of your concerns as to the future of the new editor and legacy editor.

      Problem Statement

      "old" panel macro was much more fully featured as border styles, text styles and titles etc could be specified.

      Suggestion

      Having the feature from the old and in addition to the new predefined ones, or one that could provide both the new templates and the existing functionality would be great.

       

      From CONFCLOUD-65659:

      Problem Definition

      The new macro called Panel in the new editor allows users to contextually switch between:

      • Info - Blue
      • Note - Purple
      • Success - Green
      • Warning - Orange
      • Error - Red

      There's no option for the user to choose on their own which of the icons or colors show, or if they want an icon to show at all.

      Suggested Solution

      Customers should be able to edit/change/set the background color for panel macro and choose if they want to display an icon.

      Why this is important

      The customer wants to customize the panel macro, which they are not able to do because of the new editor changes.

      Workaround

      No current workaround, but I've used the new Layout feature mentioned in Confluence Editing Improvements to display as a panel of my own.
