Adding sections in a confluence document

Hi guys.


I'd like to add sections throughout my confluence document for exporting in pdf format without breaking images between pages.

I've taken a look into the help and have found that I'd need to use the Section Macro if I want to insert a more editable section than the standards layouts provided by the confluence.


The issue with the standard layouts is that I only have the option of two or three columns and I need just one column 


If someone could help me, I'd be thankful.

These are not "section macros", they're layout formatting, and they don't do sections really.

If you need a part of a page that's a full width (a single column), you just don't use a layout for it.

How can I add a section macro then? There is no such macro in the list of macros of my confluence

There is no section macro on Cloud.  It's been superceded by the layouts!

Hi @Denis Oliveira

I have to admit that I don't have a direct solution to your question about the various columns.

However, you could give the Scroll PDF Exporter a try. This has way more formatting options than the built-in Exporter. And they also add an extra macro for keeping content together.


PS: Please note that I work for K15t, the company behind the Scroll PDF Exporter.

Hi @Matthias Gaiser _K15t_ 


Very nice tip.


I'll try out the app and see how it works.
