When is page level security available for Confluence?

In a recent email it mentioned early November 2022.

Gerri Mills November 14, 2022

Unfortunately the updates have completely broken our PDF exports :-( 

Um found this on another page (can't link here apparently) . "NOTE: If @page customizations are being applied in the space PDF stylesheet, you won’t see the improvements to PDF being applied as they are incompatible at the moment."

Actually, what you mean to say is if you are using @page customizations they now no longer work, and the functionality you were previously using isn't available.

Space exports are broken.

I have to use space export to

1. Add page header

2. add page footer

3. include multiple pages in the one export to force a page break as there is no way to have a page break any other way.

 

Space Export to pdf

1. doesn't export the table of contents from within the page, but will add a TOC itself because @page customisations to hide it don't work anymore.

2. always adds page numbers even if you don't check that box.

 

I had to spend an hour reformatting the export to word (which didn't actually create a proper word document, rather a web page saved with .doc extension) in a format adequate to send to my client. 

Really unimpressed

Looks really nice.  Any chance of this being extended to when a space is exported to pdf?  We make a lot of use of that capability for either controlled documents or people without Confluence, but the formatting is poor and often chops off wide pages etc.

As a veteran of the gaming industry (and still a gamer, myself), I want to know more about how gamers are using Confluence!

Unfortunately, the link associated with Gamers keep work moving with Confluence 🎧 redirects to  at https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/managers 😿

This also reminds me, I really should write an article on how I use Jira on my private Atlassian subscription to help manage my ADHD--and why the Jira Work Management Task tracking and Personal task planner templates aren't as helpful for this as Jira Software Development (spoiler: it's Scrum/Sprints).

This release is a facade. When will we be able to enter Edit mode without the page jumping up and down and taking forever to read? When will we be able to save a page and it will stay in place?
