Export to word style


In Confluence if I export to PDF I can define a layout and stylesheet. When I export to Word, I see that when I open the document, the document don't have the same style as PDF export (obviously), and only contains information for people who can not enter the system.

There any way to set the style to make export of Word document to get a similar result as when I make pdf export?

Thanks in advance

Can't you achieve this with what is described at Customise MS Word Exports ?

Looks good. I think I can do with this solution.

Hello Daniel,

It does not look like we currently have a way to define custom layouts or stylesheets for Word exports. I went a head and filed the following feature request on your behalf.


Please visit this issue and vote on it it increase the likelyhood it will be added to a future release of Confluence. I have attached this post to the ticket to further improve it's visibility to our developers.

Hope & wait for this feature ! :(

We have created macros in word that run on exports from Confluence after the 'export to word' function has been completed. This has worked very well for us and will until the enhancement is released. thanks!


Hi Catherine,


Thank you, would you be able to share how this was done?
