      Update: May 2024

      Hi folks, 

      Kieran here, one of the Product Managers for the Atlassian Editor. Thanks for the further feedback, we are listening! I just wanted to provide another update. We are continuing to look at further nesting combinations (FYI recent nesting enhancements can be found here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-articles/Content-nesting-enhancements-in-Confluence-Cloud/ba-p/2629303#M9859).

      At this stage I can't provide a timeframe but we are actively looking to smooth the transition that many of you have experienced when switching over to the Cloud editor, in relation to these nesting gaps. I also wanted to clarify what is available inside Lists today, as some folks mentioned these in requests. 

      Available in Lists today:

      • Actions
      • Code snippet
      • Media (images, video)

      If you're having issues with these or have different requirements, please reach out to support team or if you'd like to discuss your nesting requests directly with me feel free to find some time in my calendly link https://calendly.com/kieran-editor/30min


      Product Manager, Editor.


      "In the previous version of Confluence, you were able to easy move and place the info panel between a number list without breaking the sequence. The new version doesn't allow the number list to continue when inserting the info panel... It resets the numbers."

      By being able to insert macros between numbered lists, some of them allowed different content to be placed inside (I.E. tables) and useful information that would be tied to the specific number of the list. This request also applies to codes when inserted in the numbered list.

      It would be very useful to have this feature back in the fabric editor.

      This also affects the Bullet List. Macros cannot be added to bulleted lists as well.



      Use a table with the Numbering columns feature on tables. By doing so, you can put any amount of content that you prefer inside a single cell, and then, jump to the next one that would be the next in the numbering list order. 


      Additionally, images can be added to a numbered lists directly. Inline images can be inserted as emojis.
