Weird formatting issues when exporting a Confluence page with headers to PDF


Hey y'all, 

I'm having some formatting issues when exporting to PDF, and I don't have these issues when exporting to a Word document. We don't have anything custom with our Confluence formatting that could mess anything up, so I'm kind of surprised that it looks so bad, and I really want to figure out why. 

Attached is a screenshot showing the difference between both exports, with the PDF on the left and the DOCX on the right. Any help in understanding this issue would be appreciated!

Hi @Keelan Sears welcome to community!

Check out this documentation page for how to customize the formatting for your PDF exports. You'll notice at the bottom of the page it mentions that the headers are demoted with the export, so that might explain why you are seeing the differences between your Word and PDF export.

@Laura Campbell _Elements_ Thank you so much for the speedy response! I'll play around with those parameters and see if I can get it to work.
