Hi @Wafaa AbdElAlim 

Can you give us a bit more information?

  • Can you open the PDF or is it totally broken?
  • Do you have some special macros in your page that you export or is it just text?
  • Does this problem occurs only for you or for all confluence users?
  • Does this problem occurs on every confluence page or just for some pages?
  • Do you use third party apps for exporting to a PDF or the normal confluence approach?


Thanks in advance. 

Regards, Dominic

These images are from the PDF or from the confluence? 

Could the language pack be the cause? It seems, that you have some arabic text in the screen shots. perhaps confluence can't deal with the text, but i do not know.

What you could do is to make a ticket at atlassian itself.
