If you need to style your element via an external style sheet, enter all class names here, separated by a blank.

Inline Styles

Enter a simple text here that will popup as a tooltip when the mouse is hovered over the element.

Custom Attributes

You can enter fully specified custom attributes here separated by blanks, e.g.: data-animal=”cat” data-color=”red”.

Strip Body Wrapper

By default, Confluence will wrap any macro body content into a <p> tag. For custom HTLM tags, this might lead to unwanted results. Check this option to remove the Confluence <p> wrapper.

Strip all Tags from Body

Confluence will also add other tags to your body if you format it accordingly, e.g. headings or lists. In case you want all of them stripped, check this option.


This option will draw a red border around the element. This can be useful during page design.
