Hi Petek, (@Alternacx2022)

Thank you for sharing these details. It helps! I'll step in and help since Srinatha isn't available at this moment.

First, you should make sure you're following the Cloud version of that document. The page you linked is for Server specifically. Refer to this page instead: Confluence Cloud: Customize Exports to PDF 

Second, you edited the Global PDF layout, but you mentioned it doesn't work when you try to export individual page content. Note that the Global PDF layout applies to full site exports.

PDF customization only applies to space exports (not single page exports via Tools > Export to PDF)


I'm happy to keep working on this with you, but the WeTransfer file you sent earlier is expired. It would also be easier if I could have a look at your site. In that case, I can raise a support ticket for you and work directly with you via our support portal. Please let me know if you like that option, and I can create the ticket.

Take care,

Shannon | Atlassian Community Support

Hi @Alternacx2022 ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

I checked the platform URL above but due to page restrictions I could not access the same. If you can elaborate more on  the issue and specify

what steps you tried on the webpage ?

what was the end result ? You received any error ?

Then we will be in a better position to check and provide any suggestion / solution based on that.
