The section will show you which macros and features of Confluence Cloud and K15t apps are supported by the Help Center theme and Scroll Viewport for Cloud.
Have a look at our Example Help Center to see how the supported macros look like on a live site.
SUPPORTED - macro of features is supported. If you have any issues with it, please raise a ticket.
PLANNED - the macro of feature is planned to be supported. Take a look at our public Jira to see which status the feature has.
NOT SUPPORTED - this macro or feature is currently not supported and isn’t planned to be so. If you need this macro or feature, please raise a ticket.
The following table refers to macros of the new Confluence editor. We can’t guarantee support for macros that are exclusively available in Confluence’s legacy editor and recommend that you convert your pages to the new editor.
|Macro||Status for Viewport||Comments for Viewport|
|Panel macro||Custom panels are supported. Emojis in those panels will show as long as they are not custom emojis (see table).|
|Anchor macro and anchor links|
|Attachments macro||The macro output in Viewport is a simple table that includes the file name, the file type and the modification date.|
The Viewport output excludes the upload area.
|Blog posts macro||Since we currently don’t support blog posts, this macro isn’t supported.|
|Change history macro|
|Chart macro||A bug in the app causes the image to break a few minutes after publishing.|
|Children display macro||We override this macro to generate a consistent view of the content.|
If enabled via the macro’s configuration, Viewport will show:
- The current children of the page. Selecting other parent pages is not supported and will default to the current page.
- A maximum of two descendant levels. More levels are hidden.
- A simple excerpt of the page. Rich text is not supported.
|Code snippet macro||Syntax highlights are supported for most popular languages|
|Content by label macro||The macro in Viewport will only show content of the type ‘pages’. Any pages that are not part of the current Scroll Viewport site or that lie outside the site’s content sources won’t show up in Viewport.|
The preview report will show a warning if you end up with completely empty macros on a page.
|Content report table|
|Contributors macro||User mentions are anonymized|
|Contributors summary macro||User mentions are anonymized|
|Create from template macro||We ignore the macro in the Viewport site so you can use it for internal page creation purposes only.|
|Excerpt include macro|
|Excerpt macro||Viewport uses the content in your excerpt macro as article meta descriptions.|
We recommend adding excerpt macros to all pages in order to improve how search engines rank and index your site's articles.
|Include page macro||Go to Viewport Site Settings -> Content inclusions to allow for page inclusions from anywhere (not just your content source)|
|Label list macro||The list is correctly shown but the links don't work.|
|Live search macro||The theme already comes with search functionality.|
|Office Excel macro|
|Office Powerpoint macro|
|Office Word macro|
|Page Index macro|
|Page properties macro||It’s styled just like any other table in the help center.|
If you don’t want the macro to appear in your articles, open your macro configurations in Confluence and set the macro to ‘hidden'.
|Page properties report macro|
|Page tree search macro|
|Page tree macro||The help center theme already provides a page tree.|
|PDF macro||Suggested workflow: To add a PDF, drag and drop the PDF file into your Confluence page or use the 'Files & Images' option in the editor toolbar.|
The inserted file will show as a plain link.
Depending on the user’s browser (configuration), clicking the link in Viewport will download the PDF right away, or open a preview in a new tab.
|Popular labels macro||The list is correctly shown but the links don't work.|
|Profile picture macro|
|Recently updated dashboard macro|
|Recently used labels macro|
|Recently updated macro|
|Related labels macro||The list will show all related labels but the label links lead to a 404 page.|
|Shared link bookmarklet button|
|Space list macro||Tabs aren’t supported.|
|Table of content zone macro||A table of content is already included with the theme. We recommend using the included functionality.|
|Table of content macro||A table of content is already included within the theme. We recommend using the included functionality.|
|User list macro|
|User profile macro|
|Widget connector macro||Use the widget connector to embed a video from sources like Youtube or Vimeo to your Viewport site.|
Is your video from Youtube or Loom? Pasting your public video link into the page and setting the link to ‘Embed' is your quickest way to get videos into your articles.
|Editor feature||Status for Viewport||Comments for Viewport|
|Emojis in Page Title|
|Images||- We don’t support effects on images like shadows or borders.|
- We don’t support wrap right/wrap left alignments

(uploaded using the Files & images icon or drag and drop)
|We recommend to embed videos from external (streaming) platforms using the Widget connector macro or editor's Embed links option (see table).|
Using external streaming services will result in a much better watch experience for your users, especially those on mobile devices and mobile data plans. Streaming services not only have responsive video players but also support changing the film quality (thus adapting to the connection quality of the user).
|Links||Links that point to another domain will open in a new tab.|
|Lists (numbered and bulleted)|
|Embed links||Will show embedded content only for public Youtube and Loom videos.|
|Emojis||Emojis will display as followed: 🙂🙁😛😀😉👍👎🔒 📱 🔧 |
Standard emojis will show in the OS/Browser representation. This might deviate from Confluence’s representation of the emoji.
|Text formatting||Text formatted as inline code follows the same styling as code snippets (monospaced font and grey background), so that it’s distinguishable from paragraph style text.|
|Custom Emojis||Custom emojis are not supported as Confluence doesn’t (yet) support export of these emojis.|
|Layouts (columns and sections)||To ensure a perfect presentation of your content we currently don’t support multi column layouts. Content on columns is instead displayed beneath each other.|
This table lists all supported macros that are delivered with K15t apps.

Scroll Imagemaps: maps are shown in articles as configured in the macro, using the custom colors of your theme’s header for the area filling and outline.
For a mobile-friendly result, we recommend you tick the checkboxes for ‘responsive’ and ‘show areas’ in the ImageMap editor. That way your linked areas will always be visible in the mobile view.
