How do I...How do I use emoticons and other symbols and special characters?
Answer

You can add various symbols and special characters to Confluence pages. You can also use them in other places that display content, such as blog posts, comments, the dashboard welcome message and the configuration panels offered by the Documentation theme.

To add a symbol to your page:

  1. Edit the page.
  2. Choose Insert > Ω Symbol. This will display the 'Insert Custom Character' window.
  3. Choose a symbol to insert it.

To add an emoticon from those available:

  1. Choose Insert > Emoticon.
  2. Choose an emoticon to insert it.
