I am trying to use the highlight macro to highlight a word inline, similar to this:

I only want the word this to be grey.

When I use the Confluence editor, I create this:

confluence edit

Next, I ensure that inline display is selected:

confluence inline

I include no new lines, and no matter what I get this output:

enter image description here

What am I missing to make the entire sentence appear on the same line?

One answer is to put the whole line in a {wiki} macro, like so:

{wiki} I only want {highlight:gray} this {highlight} word to be gray. {wiki}

Seems crazy but I could not get the inline button to work for me at all.
