How to fix formatting in PDF exports of page properties report


We are using Confluence to automatically roll up information from child pages to the parent page using the page properties macro. In order to ensure we have a history of previous versions of that report, we would like to export to PDF on a weekly basis and save the earlier versions. However, when we export to PDF, we find that two of the columns are strangely formatted (see attachment for reference).

1. Is there a way to fix this in the parent page itself, and if not:

2. Is there another best practice for historicizing our reports?

@haleigh_stewart  Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I am moving your question to the Confluence Questions collection where it belongs and will get more attention. The current collection, Question for Confluence, is related to the Atlassian owned application of the same name.

In general, PDF formatting for exports from Confluence is a finnicky and buggy process. Regarding having historical reference for the Page Properties Report Macro, unfortunately since it feeds from other pages you cannot rely on the Page History function to see meaningful data that changed behind the report. The report itself is just an emulation of the underlying data.
