Release notes 8.0

What's new in this release

Completely redesigned macro editor

The macro editor has been completely transformed into a clean, tabbed interface that groups parameters together based on functionality. There are now specific sections in the editor for you to add advanced styling and formatting to the entire table, individual columns, and alternating rows. This makes it much easier to customize your tables using the featured macros within Advanced Tables.

Collapsible preview tray for more workspace

The preview pane in the macro editor is now collapsible. With a simple click, you can open the preview when you want to view your changes and hide it when you need more workspace.

Improved data source selection menu 

For the CSV Table, JSON Table, and Attachment Table macros, we've added a drop-down to make it easier to locate your data source. Based on your selection, a set of dynamic drop-downs or text fields will appear so you can input additional information about where your data is located.

Easily locate the Advanced Tables macros

The four featured macros within Advanced Tables all have updated names to make it easier to add these macros to your Confluence pages. Now, each macro has “Advanced Tables” in its name, so your team can easily find and use these powerful macros.

We’ve also added our most commonly used Advanced Tables macro, Table Plus, to the Insert macro drop-down for quick and easy access.

For more information on the featured macros, examples, and app usage, refer to the User's Guide.

This release is available for Confluence 6.0 and above.

Release highlights

A note from the product team

The Bob Swift software team is proud to announce the release of Advanced Tables for Confluence, version 8.0.

Advanced Tables for Confluence is one of our most popular Bob Swift Atlassian apps and version 8.0 is our biggest release yet! We completely overhauled the macro editor and added other improvements that will make it easier than ever to build custom tables in Confluence. Still the same powerful macros you know and love, but with an entirely new look!

As always, we'd like to thank you, our amazing customers, for continuing to support this app. And an extra shoutout to those of you who voted for some of the improvements in this release! Your feedback and ideas are instrumental and are greatly appreciated by everyone on our team. You truly are the reason we build software!
