We've been using the Scroll versions plugin for a while and are generally very happy with it, but the usability of the linking functions is not good.
One of the features in Confluence that we use a lot is the automatic list of suggested page names when you started defining a link (that is, when you click "[" and start typing). However, many of the suggestions tend to be "dot pages" that should not be linked to. This means that members of the team often accidentally define links to the wrong page, which is then only spotted when we are about the publish an update to the documentation (not a good time to have to go and chase down incorrect links). It would be an enormous improvement if the "dot pages" could be filtered out of the suggestions displayed by Confluence when you start to define a link. It would also be very helpful if the Link dialog had a search function which allowed you to search only the master pages and excluded the dot pages from the results. Using the page tree to define links relies on people knowing exactly where to find the topic they need, which is often not the case in larger spaces.
