Export to PDF does not print 'WYSIWYG' format

I need to be able to print my Confluences pages to show how they are displayed in my browser.  When I export them to PDF (or Word) they layout is wrong, and checkboxes are converted to bullet point like dots. I want to print pages in 'WYSIWYG' format.

The built-in PDF export functionality has some limitations, unfortunately. There is not a lot you can do about it.  There is an app called Scroll PDF that gives you a ton of control over PDF formatting.  We use it to do things like add "letterhead," control page breaks, etc. It works really well. You'll need to know/learn a little CSS, but it's not hard to configure.

Unfortunately, I prefer an affordable option and one that does not require technical skills, as several team members will be printing these pages.

Disappointing that Confluence has very limited options and a number of things require a pay-to-use plugin.

Hi Casey,

With Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 we introduced a graphical template designer that allows you to create templates without any CSS or HTML skills required.

Please feel free to check it out here: Scroll PDF Exporter

If you have questions regarding the app, please feel free to get in touch with us via support@k15t.com - we'll be happy to help.
