Easy Numbered Headings


Easy Numbered Headings adds numbering to all of your headings without needing any setup or macros. Numbering is applied in the editor, in view mode, and when exported to PDF or Word.


Easy Numbered Headings adds one macro to the Confluence editor:

This macro allows setting the following options:

  • Set the number for the next heading, following headings will increment that number.
  • Disable or re-enable numbering for the following headings.
  • Set a prefix for the following headings.


The following settings can be applied globally and for each space.
