How can i disable export to word?

I don't want users to be able to export pages or spaces to word or PDF. I've disabled the PDF plugin, but can't seem to find a way to disable export to word. Any ideas?

Hi Derek,

Try this :

  • Open up confluence admin

  • Go to Custom HTML option & edit.
  • Paste the following code into the HEADER section
<style type="text/css">
#action-export-word-link{ display: none}
</style>

What it does is that it over-rides the default CSS and make it disappear!

I tried this and this works.

You are welcome. Could you also please accept my answer as well by enabling the green checkmark near my answer?

Hello Derek, it is not very visible, from the Confluence Admin > Manage Add-Ons > Choose 'System'in the drop down. Than look for the Page Operations Add-On, expand the item and you will find the Export as Word(wordexport) component, which can be disabled.

Thank you - however there is not an option to disable that component. How do I do that?
