Some macros do not produce any output (like the Scroll Index Term macro), but when placed on a single line, Confluence will wrap them with a paragraph, which leads to empty paragraphs. How can I avoid those blank paragraphs?
To avoid blank paragraphs you have to create a user macro to enclose the affected macros.
Before you begin: Before you can create a user macro, you must log in with Confluence Admin permissions.
To create a index-term-wrapper macro:
- Click the cog icon at top right of the screen and select Confluence Admin.
The Administration Console is displayed.
- In the Configuration section, click User Macros
- Create a new user macro like this:
Replace the text in the field Template with the following:
## Macro title: Index Term Wrapper ## Macro has a body: Y ## Body processing: Rendered ## Output: Selected output option ## @noparams $body
- Click Save.The macro is created and can now be used to wrap all the index term macros.
