Cannot see "Export to PDF" option in the tools menu


recently upgraded to Confluence 5.1.3. Am running Windows 7. Have full space admin rights (including space export).

The "Export to Word" function is in the Tools menu, but not "Export to PDF".

Option was there before upgrade. (We moved from v3.x)

Any suggestions?

thanks very much

Hi Sandra,

could you please check the following settings in confluence administration?

  1. Log in as Confluence Administrator
  2. Open Confluence Administration Section and navigate to Manage Add-ons
  3. Serach for "Confluence PDF Export" with System in Drop Down

May be this module will be disabled. That could be the reason, why you cant see this option in the user front end.

You can find this at:

Browse->Space Operations->PDF export

thanks for your response. We can't see that option either.

(And I think that's the space export function rather than page export?)


We can either select whole space or required page/s.

At the top, or go from browse->space admin-> Space Operations->PDF export

thank again. However the PDF export option is not showing on the Space Operations page. Can see HTML export and XML Export, but not PDF export.

Which version=?
