Insert Variables to PDF Space Exports Header

I would like to be able to insert some sort of variable to a space PDF export, so that the variables show-up in the header. I would like it to work as follows:

On the top-level of the page heirichy, you somehow set-up a few variables, like document number, and document name. Then, when you do a space export, it will pull those variables and insert it to the header.

I basically want to have one PDF layout set-up, and be able to create multiple documents from one Confluence project. Our long-term document storage system requires that we have details like document number and name, and that's going to change for each document that gets created.

This widget could not be displayed.


there are no ready-made variables for this. But it can be done with running elements. I made a description for this at

Good luck!
