Insert the lorem ipsum macro

This macro was intentionally excluded from the new editor and will be deprecated from the legacy editor soon. Read the announcement for more information. 

The Loremipsum macro displays paragraphs of pseudo-Latin text (more information). You can use this macro to generate more-or-less meaningless text for demonstration purposes in pages showing a draft layout or arrangement of page elements. The text is deliberately non-meaningful so that it does not influence the viewer's perception of the page arrangement or design.

Use the Loremipsum macro

To add the Loremipsum macro:

  1. When editing , select from the toolbar

  2. Find the item to be inserted and select it

  3. Select Insert

You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar.

To edit the Loremipsum macro:

  1. Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.

  2. Select Edit. The right panel opens.

  3. Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.

  4. Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.


Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output. 

If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, it will be listed below in brackets (example).




Number of Paragraphs


Determines the amount of pseudo-Latin (space-filler) text to display. The macro will display a maximum number of 30 paragraphs.

Parameter is unnamed in storage format and wikimarkup.

Wiki markup example

Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.

Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.

Macro name: loremipsum
