Pdf / Word permission configuration is invalid Edited

When a new user is set up without the permission to export Word and Pdf, the content can still be exported locally when logging in with the new user.

Hi @charliethinker 

what you can see on your screenshot is only meant for a single article - you can export any article to word or pdf. 

Talking about permissions you mentioned is about exporting the whole space - as pdf and admin rights. -> original documentation about space permissions here and about exporting content here

Do you want to disable pdf export for the whole space? Have a look on this solution.  

Thank you, 

how to disable word export?

Hi @charliethinker

that's a bit more tricky - a solution is to 'hide' it 

  • Open up confluence admin
  • Go to Custom HTML option & edit.
  • Paste the following code into the HEADER section
<style type="text/css">
#action-export-word-link{display: none}

Pay attention - that only hides the button but doesn't really disable it!
