Disabling export as word from Page Operations

Dear All

I have been trying to disable all export functionality from Confluence; however, I have been unsuccessful when I try to disable "export as word" (wordexport) from Page Operations add-on. Unfortunately, this is one of the modules that cannot be modified.

This module gives Confluence users the ability to navigate to Page Information and select Export As:    Word.

Is there a way that this module can be hidden, I do prefer to have it disabled completely though.

Thanks in advance

Hi @earlramirez,

Following code would be a workaround;

Confluence admin -> Custom HTML -> Header

<style type="text/css">#action-export-word-link{ display: none}</style> 

Thanks @Tansu Akdeniz that was done previously; however, it only disable the exporting to word from the page settings but does not disable it under Page Information.

@earlramirezYou can use the following code to hide it from Page information section also.

<style type="text/css">
#action-export-word-link{ display: none}
#exportToMsWord{ display: none}

@earlramirezYou are welcome.

For  Confluence7.12.2 
Its the same settings: Confluence admin -> General Config -> Custom HTML 

Note: This change is a System level change


Uncheck export on the space level. Please see attached image.

@Victor Mutambuki _Mumo Systems_unfortunately, this has been done from the initial configuration, what I am trying to prevent is disabling Export As: Word from Page Information.

This is what I will like t disable
