Incompatible macros when nested within Composition Cloud's Tab and Tab Group macros


Many Confluence macros do not work properly when nested within a Tab or Tab Group macro.


  • Confluence Cloud


Due to limitations with Confluence Cloud's live editor, nested macros no longer work as before. What this means for Composition is that many macros do not function as intended when nested within either a Tab or Tab Group macro.


A solution is forthcoming.

In the meantime, the following is a list of compatible and incompatible macros:
