Confluence Cloud (2020): How to add CSS that works to the PDF Stylesheet in a page

I have spent hours searching the Confluence forums and help pages with no success. Nearly everything I find dates back to 2018. 

I have the latest page editor in Confluence Cloud. 

I would like to customize the CSS for my pages (NOT at the Global setting) using the PDF StyleSheet under

Space Settings > Look and Feel

I want to change my headings and fonts on the page using this snippet of CSS code. 


h1 {
font-size: 2.5em; /* 40px/16=2.5em */
font-family: Impact, Charcoal, sans-serif;
text-decoration: underline;
text-shadow: 3px 2px lightgray;
color: #048DB2;

h2 {
font-size: 1.75em; /* 30px/16=1.875em */
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;

p {
font-size: 0.875em; /* 14px/16=0.875em */
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
line-height: 1.5;
letter-spacing: 1.5px;


I've tried everything and nothing is working.

Hi Tara,

Thank you for contacting us about this.

There are some further instructions from our Advanced PDF Export Customizations page.  Have you seen the instructions there? Perhaps they can help you to customize your PDF export.

You can also upload a custom font and refer to it using the method in the article above.

I hope that helps; let me know if you have any questions about that.
