template options for Confluence... best option for moderately complex documents?

I need to support the eventual generation of PDF documents from Confluence content that must follow a prescribed format. This is for system development life cycle documents: requirements, architecture decisions, designs etc.

Thanks.

Hello Tom,

Any document you create in Confluence will be able to be exported to PDF.

The idea behind Confluence blueprints is that they contain operational best practices for creating documents.

You can roll your own blueprints to present custom documentation types specfic t oyour organization, or purchase blueprint packs from the Atlassian Marketplace.

Brilliant!

So with a custom blueprint, can I specify "sections" of content that are mandatory, others that are optional etc? Would the content that is created via said blueprint live in one page or can it span pages? I'm thinking in terms of navigability if a piece were to span say, 100 printed pages.
