restrict page export

We are currently searching the option in the space permissions to restrict exporting a page.

is it possible to restrict users from exporting pages like it was in confluence 4.3.7 ?

old menu: 

  • Pages:
    • Add – user may create and edit pages in this space.
    • Export – user may export pages in this space.
    • Restrict – user may apply page-level restrictions.
    • Remove – user may remove pages in this space.

new menu: 

PagesAddCreate and edit pages in the space.
RestrictApply page-level restrictions.
DeleteDelete pages in the space.

and it says: Anyone who has permission to view the page also has permission to export its content.

or am i wrong about this? 

if yes.. pls tell me how we can restrict permissions to export a single page in a space. or just send me a link to the site explaining it i really cant find it. 

Ahh, sorry, I was thinking about the space permissions for export (which cascade down into allowing page exporting) You're right, you can no longer restrict a page export.

You could do it with Themebuilder I think, and probably Lockpoint too and there may be others. But I think it was removed because it was pretty much pointless - if you can see a page, you can copy and paste it into any form you want, so restricting the export doesn't really add a lot.

yeah np^^ well thx :( is there really no option to make this possible? some plugins or anything?
