Add title numbering - PDF export

Hi,

How can I add the numbering to the various titles in the PDF export?

So when using the PDF export feature in Confluence, you will notice that Confluence will add a table of contents on one of the very first few set of pages. Well as part of the table of contents, are a set of numbers which are associated with each title (section).

How can I get the PDF export to add these numbers to the titles in the various different sections of the PDF document. It just adds the titles in bold but it does not add the title numbers.

 

Thanks, Dan.

This needs to be done in the PDF export stylesheet.

As an example, you can open the confluencedefaultpdf.css (the default stylesheet) and have a look how the numbering for the table of contents is done (search for all the formats starting with "div.toc...").

The code I have created for the numbering of my h1 and h2 headings looks like this:

body {  
counter-reset: levelA;   
}  
h2:before {  
content: counter(levelA) ". ";  
counter-increment: levelA;  
}  
h2 {  
counter-reset:levelB;   
}  
h3:before {  
content: counter(levelA) "." counter(levelB) ". ";  
counter-increment: levelB;   
}

I tried this, but I could not get it to work :(
