Question

In terms of the content inside the Hide-if or Show-if macros. are there any special cases that I need to be aware of?

Answer

The content inside hide-if and show-if macros macros may not be displayed the same way in Cloud as they were in Server. For example:

  • If pages contains a third-party macro, you’ll still need to install that first.
  • Similarly, macros with integrations to other macros that’s not supported in Confluence Cloud will not work as expected.
  • Pages that contain nested bodied macro will still work upon migration as long as you don't convert the page to New Editor
