We know from your feedback that the existing View File macros provide important functionality that the newer file upload and preview experience does not. For this reason, we've decided to reverse the decision to stop supporting these macros.
The following View File macros are fully supported from Confluence 6.14:
- Office Excel
- Office PowerPoint
- Office Word
This means we will fix bugs relating to these macros, and will not remove the macros from Confluence.
As you may know, Confluence Cloud are in the process of releasing a new viewer for the View File macros. While we may consider this approach for Confluence Server in future, we plan to wait for the experience to be rolled out and refined in Confluence Cloud before we evaluate the suitability of this approach for Server customers.
