The Registered Trademarks macro makes it easy to add customizable registered trademarks to content.

Although a registered trademark symbol can be directly inserted using the page editor, there are some issues to be aware of:

  • If a registered trademark is hyperlinked, the symbol often gets an underline making it look odd.

  • It’s not possible to globally brand all registered trademarks to use the same text color, fonts, etc.

The Registered Trademark macro allows you to overcome all these issues:

  • The symbol never gets underlined.

  • Registered trademarks can be branded using style sheets.

Hyperlinked Registered Trademark

A registered trademark may be hyperlinked using the standard Confluence editor.

The registered mark does not get hyperlinked and the text link is not underlined.

Trademark text with CSS styles

You can change the style of text by adding the CSS class name to the CSS Class parameter. The class must be defined in a CSS Class macro added to your page or in your Global Confluence CSS. In the example below, a custom color was defined using CSS, and monospace font selected from Confluence's editor.
