Customized font for Cyrillic: bold no longer appears in PDF export

Nicolas Casel Jul 01, 2015

Hi all,

In order to display Cyrillic characters for PDF export, we upload our own .ttf file to replace the Confluence default one.

However, the PDF export generates a file with no bold character (on the contrary to Word export which works fine).

Any idea to resolve this? How could I find a font (.ttf file) which meets these "requirements"?


Thanks in advance,

I had the exact same problem. Actually, what you need is not a single ttf but a ttc (collection of fonts). This ttc will embed all the versions of your font (bold, italic, etc). One could use fontforge to create it if not available.

and you need to specify in your css: body,p,li,td,table,tr,.bodytext,.stepfield { font-family: ConfluenceInstalledFont; }

Thanks @Steffen Heller and @Benoit Plet , it fits to my need.

I'm going to create my own .ttc file from 2 sources:

1) my customized .ttf

2) the default Confluence .ttf. About it, how can I get it?

I used the "DejaVu" collection. It did a good job to cover special character. I have no clue about Cyrillic but it would worth trying it.

Thanks for this suggestion, it works fine (Cyrillic characters and bold are displayed in pdf export). Also, I've created a .ttc thanks to this software:
