PDF export format user mention Edited


I have confluence page that contains users mentioned with '@'. I am exporting this page to PDF, and my name is styled in differend way (it has got the blue background color). Could you, please, help me, how to style all user mentions equally?


Mentions in my confluence page have weird css selectors:

- sc-cGDfzg

- dxCfSB for my mention or dxwBDt for another user mention

and configuring them doesn't work in PDF stylesheet settings


Thank you!

Hello @Filip !

The behavior that you noticed is the expected behavior of the mentions in Confluence. The mentions will always be differently styled to show the current user (if mentioned) highlighted. I tried to style it using different classes names, such as:

  • Current-user-mention (from the source view of the page)
  • mentionView-content-wrap (from the editing screen)
  • ifvbZX (from the view screen)

The stylesheet customisations did not affect the mention macro because it is not one of the classes specified in the confluencedefaultpdf.css class.

You can check more details here:

Hi @Diego!

Thank you for your answer :) 

So, if I understand correctly, there is no way to customize style of user mention in generated PDF file?
