Why does the formatting of my pdf come out differently from what I am seeing on the screen?

I created multiple confluence pages to make a Quick User Guide. When I set it to export as a pdf. The file comes out with pages that break in weird places, graphics are in the wrong support. Can someone advise me on how to fix it? Do I need to add more CSS or what?

Hello Kirstin,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you.

Does this type of issue occur on specific pages in Confluence? At times, there are certain macros and add-ons that do not display properly in a PDF export in Confluence, so it could be something like that causing the issue.

If you were to export a page in Confluence that doesn't contain any macros and just plain text, does the export work properly?

Do you have any PDF export add-ons installed, or any PDF export customizations on your instance? It will also help us to know your Confluence version.
