Hi @Bron_Hayes ,

With the help of user macro you can add the version number on the confluence page and also the version number will be displayed on the exported pdf file.

Please follow the below steps:

  • Admin->General Configuration 
  • select "User macros" from the left hand pane
  • click on the create user macro link at the bottom of the list in the RH pane

  • Add the below code in the template.
  • Click on the Save button.
  • create the page and export it as pdf.

Please find the sample screenshot attached.
