From version 3.0.0 InPlace Editor for Confluence supports editing headings placed within layout sections and macros.

1. Once InPlace Editor for Confluence has been installed, you will see the Pencil icons next to the headings on Confluence Pages.

2. If you click the Pencil icon for some heading, the visual editor opens in the pop-up form. Here you can make the required modifications in text, add images and tables, use macros and work as if using the native Confluence Editor.

3. You can temporarily disable the add-on right from the Tools menu.

4. Your Confluence Administrator can quickly configure the add-on. The add-on can be activated only for appropriate spaces or for specific heading levels. Additionally, the add-on can be automatically enabled on newly created spaces. You can also select a suitable mode for editing headings. Use the Single Heading mode (known as the Show only selected headings before InPlace Editor 3.0.5), which allows you to exclude the adjacent heading levels for showing in InPlace editor form, when you start editing the heading of the higher level. You can also choose the click area to open the editor between the pencil icon only and the whole heading.

The main difference between InPlace Editor 3.0.5+ and older versions is the following:


InPlace Editor 3.0.5+ opens sections with the selected heading levels, and also includes adjacent sections to the next section with the heading of the same level.
