We are using Confluence pages to develop the chapter text for some technical reference material for our industry.
the final document is a PDF and uses certain fonts and heading styles defined by the industry association. In the past the Users would just directly type in the Word document and email it amongst themselves - horrible process!
Obviously it is easier to use a Confluence page for the collaborative writing, then use the standard "Export to Word"
The problem is that it exports as Times New Roman
It does retain the heading style name so the Word doc also has those style names
But how can I define the font etc on the main Confluence page and on the exported Word document to be the same as the official Word template?
Hello Rodney Hughes,
This kind of request usually is done through system files customization, which is a Restricted Function in Confluence Cloud.
However, Confluence administrators and space administrators can customize the PDF exports for individual spaces, as described at: Customize Exports to PDF. This might be an interesting workaround for you.
Hope it helps,
I've found a plug in "Scroll Office" https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.k15t.scroll.scroll-office/server/overview which seems to allow Users to upload a template to embed the required fonts and styles etc (we are about to run a trial ..)
... but still in the commonplace world of WYSIWIG, the lack of direct font selection in the Wiki toolbar is a major failing of the system ... I know wiki tool bars are usually Open Sourced code but surely these things exist already ....it shouldn't need fiddling in the background code everytime we want a new font
