Exported PDFs now more accurately match Confluence pages

Steven Bao Atlassian Team Sep 09, 2022

Hey everyone,

Steven here from the Confluence Cloud Product Management team. Following on from the bug fixes earlier (check it out here), we have revamped your PDF export functionality so it now mirrors what is shown on your Confluence page.

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.

Thank you for your patience and continued feedback on JAC tickets. We are confident that this update will improve your export experience, and we will continue to keep an eye on your suggestions for further improvements. Try it for yourself, and please leave any comments or questions below!

We’re also continuing to iterate including applying page level improvements to space level PDF exports. If you use that functionality, we would love to hear from you in the comments below. In addition, we’re investigating how other customization options can add additional value. If there are specific customization functionalities you require today, I’d recommend checking options on the Atlassian marketplace. We will also be rolling out a UI refresh to page PDF exports soon for ease of use - stay tuned :slight_smile:

@Steven Bao thanks for sharing. PDF export is a major pain point for our organization and on the community as a whole. These improvements, while not the last that are needed, are very welcome.
