After I have created and saved a global template with Scaffolding macros, I cannot seem to edit the first macro on the page. The edit (pencil) icon seems to be unavailable.

Diagnostics Steps

Not applicable.


This is a known issue in Confluence Cloud, but a workaround is available below.


  1. Select and edit a template. 

  2. Click the title of the template's page.

  3. Click the macro that you want to edit. 

  4. This will prompt the "Edit" button (pencil icon) on the macro. 


This is a known issue in Confluence Cloud (Atlassian) and it may be resolved in the future. For more details, refer to the link below:
