Exclude Content from PDF Export

In older versions, there was a noprint macro that you could use to exclude content that you didn't want to be included in a PDF export.

How do we do this in the current Confluence version?

The fabulous @Thomas_Schlegel once posted a user macro for this:

This macro should have a rendered body and the following Template:

## @noparams
<div class="NoPrint">$body</div>

Add the following to the PDF Stylesheet:

.NoPrint { display: none ; }

Put the content to be hidden in the body of the macro.

Which macro comes from you or where do I have to insert this code into Confluence? Is there a manual?

Hi @Simon Nimführ , 

as an administrator of Confluence, you can create user macros on your own (not for cloud instances, only for server).

I described creating user macros in an article some time ago:

It's another use case, but you can find the basics of creating a user macro there.

If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask.
