Users are able to edit, but the editor does not display at full size:



  • Confluence 6+
  • Collaborative Editing is enabled

Diagnostic Steps


Some custom layouts/themes are not compatible with Confluence 6. You can remove the customizations to reset the layouts to default.


Depending on how your site is customized, follow these steps until the editor displays properly:

  • Go to  -> General configuration -> Layouts -> Click on 'reset to default' (next to Page Layout)
  • Check for a customised page layout under Space content -> Look and feel -> Layouts
  • Follow our guide on How to clear customizations from Confluence
  • Enable safe mode
