How to adjust the PDF page margin?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Advanced PDF Export Customizations

I'm figuring out how to beautify the exported PDF files. For some reason Confluence think ConfluenceInstalledFont is the prettiest font ever.

I managed to change that in the exported PDF copy. But I can't fix the enormous page margin. Also, columnMacro seems to be fixed to display as block.

Any idea how to beautify the PDF exported file?

Did you try adjusting the margins in the PDF Stylesheet?:

margin-top: .75in;
margin-bottom: .75in;
margin-left: .75in;
margin-right: .75in;


Oh, and columns are problematic. If the output is wonky, try using a table instead.

I tried multiple different ways suggested online to get this to work, and you'rs is the only solution that did it, Milo.  Thanks!
