The Trademarks macro enables you to add customizable trademarks to your content.

Although you can insert a TM symbol directly using the Confluence's page editor, there are some limitations to note:

  • The TM symbol is often difficult to read if you are using a small font

  • The TM symbol is not supported by all browsers, operating systems, or fonts

  • If you hyperlink a trademark, the TM symbol often gets an underline

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

The Trademarks macro lets you overcome all these issues:

  • It’s clearly readable with more fonts and sizes

  • It works on all browsers

  • The TM symbol never gets underlined

  • Trademarks can be customized using style sheets
