Create Space Button Macro

Add the Create Space Button macro to a page to provide a quick, visual prompt to create a space in Confluence. The Create Space Button provided by the macro is only be visible to people who have the who have the Create Space global permission.  

This is a legacy macro and was primarily used before you could create a space directly from the Spaces dropdown in the header.  However, it might be useful when documenting a procedure that requires creating a space, for example a set-up guide for new teams.
