Customizing PDF Export

Hello everyone,

I have created a rather large product user manual and I need to export it to PDF and print it. This is an easy process, however, after finishing the space export (by only selecting the pages I need) I can see that the there is no spacing between each page, and that makes the content to get squeezed.

I have attached a screenshot that will hopefully illustrate my issue, please let me know if there's a way to solve this via PDF stylesheet customization or any other workaround:

Thank you!

Globally (as Confluence Admin -> PDF Stylesheet) or locally (Space Admin -> Look and Feel menu tab) change your PDF Stylesheet to something similar to this:

  1. @page
  2. {
  3. /*The A4 paper size is 210 mm wide by 297 mm long*/
  4. size: 210mm 297mm;
  5. margin: 25mm;
  6. }
  7. .pagetitle
  8. {page-break-before: always;
  9. }
  10. div {
  11. word-wrap: break-word;
  12. }

Thanks Ole, it appears to have worked just fine!
