Advanced Plugin Settings

The advanced plugin settings allow project admins to tweak the behavior of Scroll Translations. This article describes what settings are available, and how to change them.

Read the documentation thoroughly before applying these changes

Generally it is not advisable to change the standard settings – and you should only change them with a thorough understanding of what they do.

Please read the documentation carefully before applying any changes in production.

Change advanced settings

Some advanced plugin settings can be defined on the space level, some can be activated on the global level, and some can be activated on both. Refer to the Available settings table below to see the scope of the individual advanced settings.

  • Confluence Administrators can configure settings on the global level at General Configuration > Scroll Runtime > Advanced Plugin Settings >  Scroll Platform.

  • Confluence Administrators and Space Administrators can configure settings on a space level at Space tools > Scroll Add-ons, and then pressing the ALT/Option key to make a menu entry for Advanced Plugin Settings appear.

Please note that the global settings always overrule the space settings.
