Hi @all,

we want to export content to PDF but not over the menu [...]

We want an Link or Button on the site. Ok on ever site i can look an copy from the menu, but that is very hard about many sites.

Is there another solution for my problem ?

The only way I could find natively was to add a web link to the page which points at the same link the button on the menu points to. All the plugins I found seem to be focussed on formatting the exports.

I am sure what you want to achieve could be done with a User Macro, the only example I found works in conjunction with Scroll PDF Exporter:

How can I insert a export button to a page?

thx for yout help, and i found the same ... but i do not want to paid a lot of money for an only link button :-/

As a long-time user of Scroll PDF, I can say it is the only way to get professionally formatted PDFs out of Confluence (using CSS and Velocity). But it is paid,

We do take advantage that they provide a REST link the will export a specific page root using a predefind templates and export schemes.

Why exactly do you need a button for exporting pages? Do you want to export many pages at once? 

If so, check out Content Exporter for Confluence addon for exporting multiple pages at once:
