The amount of rich objects (embedded videos, office documents, images, links) that can be added to Confluence has grown rapidly over the last two releases. The insert menu is a drop down that gives users one simple place to go to add an object to a wiki page without clutter and confusion.
|10||Option to insert image. This should open the Image Browser at the tab allowing file upload.|
|20||Option insert web image. This should open the Image Browser at the tab allowing URL.|
|30||Option to insert an 'Office' document. This should open the Document browser at the tab allowing upload.||The most common attachment case is from your local machine. See the [Media Browser] spec for details on the Office Connector integration.|
|40||Option to insert a link. This should open the Link Browser|
|45||Option to insert an attachment. This should open the Link Browser at the attachments tab.||Inserting a 'generic' attachment i.e. one that is not an image or document can only sensibly be handled as an insertion of a link to an attachment.|
|50||Insert Emoticon, Symbol and Horizontal Ruler should be moved to the insert menu||This also follows the thought process a user would have in wanting to use these facilities. It also helps simplify the toolbar by moving less frequently used buttons into the menu.|
|60||Shortcut to the relevant Macro Browser screen for 5 installed macros||The macro browser can still be fairly daunting if you don't know enough about the thing you are trying to insert. This is a good mechanism to introduce users to macros.|
|70||Option to launch the macro browser with no preselected macro.||If the macro required is not one of the 5 shortcut ones then the user needs a way to use the Macro Browser to find and configure an arbitrary macro.|
|80||Identical Insert Menu in the wiki editor.||The wiki editor is significantly different from the rich text editor and is a completely separate piece of work to add the menu here.|
|55|| Within the wiki editor, no Emoticon, Symbol or Horizontal Ruler option will be implemented.
|| The Wiki Editor does not currently offer assistance with these items and we're not going to spend development time implementing it for this spec.
