Problems with exporting (PDF) included excerpts -> code blocks


I have a problem with a PDF export.

I included an excerpt which contains code blocks in another page.

Now my problem is that in the PDF export the content of the included code blocks is not visible...let me explain it with some pictures:

1. source page

I marked a part of the source page as an excerpt to be included in another page.

This page contains a code block.

2. included excerpt

the above shown excerpt is included in another page:

everything fine until this step.

3. PDF export

When I export the page with the included excerpt the PDF doesn't show the code blocks:

When I export the original page everything is fine with the code blocks...

Can anyone help?

It's a bug in Confluence 4.0.

Have to talk to my admin to update the version...

Is this something to do with page permissions? So, do you have permission to view the other page?

This has nothing to do with page permissions, I have the permission to view the other page, I created it by myself...


Just wanted to clarify here. You are experiencing a problem a pade with pdf exports only on those pages that have a excerpt nested inside another excerpt? What version of Confluence are currently running?


sorry for my late answer...

My Concluence version is 4.0.

My Problem are only the code blocks, on the source page which is included via excerpt in the page I want to export...these code blocks are not visible in the PDF export.

Don't know if this is described understandable; therefor I thought the pictures would clarify it...

the problem still isn't solved yet... :-(

does anyone have a clue?
