Loremipsum Macro

tip/resting Created with Sketch.

This macro was intentionally excluded from the new editor and will be deprecated from the legacy editor soon.

Read the announcement for more information. 


The Loremipsum macro displays paragraphs of pseudo-Latin text (more information). You can use this macro to generate more-or-less meaningless text for demonstration purposes in pages showing a draft layout or arrangement of page elements. The text is deliberately non-meaningful so that it does not influence the viewer's perception of the page arrangement or design.

A basic example of the Loremipsum text:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam fermentum vestibulum est. Cras rhoncus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Sed quis tortor. Donec non ipsum. Mauris condimentum, odio nec porta tristique, ante neque malesuada massa, in dignissim eros velit at tellus. Donec et risus in ligula eleifend consectetur. Donec volutpat eleifend augue. Integer gravida sodales leo. Nunc vehicula neque ac erat. Vivamus non nisl. Fusce ac magna. Suspendisse euismod libero eget mauris.

Using the Loremipsum macro

To add the Loremipsum macro to a page:

  1. In the Confluence editor, choose > Other Macros
  2. Find and select the required macro

Speeding up macro entry with autocomplete:

  • In the new editor - Type / and the beginning of an element (tool or things in the insert menu) to see a list of suggestions.
  • In the legacy editor - Type { and the beginning of the macro name to see a list of suggested macros.

Details are in Keyboard shortcuts, markdown, and autocomplete.
