Export to PDF - Copy content

Daniel Garcia Jan 21, 2013


I'm customizing a spaces stylesheet and layout and I have a question:

Obviously when I do export to PDF, the title of the page is assigned as the label 'h1' and I can in define style for title in stylesheet.

I want to put in the lower left corner the name of the title of the page with another style. I was thinking but I haven't found any solution :(. It is possible in some way to copy the content of the title of the page in another division (div) for exemple, to apply style and place it where I want?
Anyone think another solution? JavaScript to get the contents of a section and copy in another?

Thanks in advance!

Copying via JS probably doesn't work, as the PDF generator will not execute your JavaScript.

However you can use CSS3 running elements to put elements from the page content in the header/footer of the page. A quick google search revealed:


* The standard (please note that the PDF Exporter does not support CSS3 fully)

Alternatively look at, which makes defining Headers/Foorters for PDF export really simple. (Disclaimer: I am working for K15t Software)

Your answer don't solve my problem...

I want a solution that I can "generate" another 'div' or similar that have the title of the page... because I want to put this copy title page in the bottom of page.

I have tried many methods but I can't get the title text in another section to apply the style position.. any idea ?

"in the bottom of page" does that meant you want to put the text in the footer?

Stefan, sorry for the word 'the bottom of the page'.

Yes, I want to copy tittle of the page in the footer.

If no other solution is possible ... I want to try plugin 'Scrolls PDF Exporter'...

You can use Content Exporter for Confluence addon to add footer to any page export dynamically:

You can also add stylesheets for the export where you can define how your footer should look like:
