I spend much of my day copying from Confluence / Jira and pasting into Notepad to strip out formatting. Nothing worse than mixing Atlassian/Microsoft fonts and styles in same document or email.
Is there a Microsoft theme pack for Jira/Confluence? If not, how can I match the default word fonts and styles in Confluence and Jira? Someone must have gone through this before me.
Hi @Pete P , interesting question. I assume you're pasting into Word and Outlook (after a trip though Notepad) - is that right?
My first thought is to utilize Office's "paste and match style" function. Depending on the Office version, you might be able to access that option from the right-click menu, or the Paste icon in the toolbar. It's even possible to set that as the default paste behavior in Outlook and also as the default behavior in Word. That's the best option, as it covers any incoming paste and doesn't require server changes.
In Confluence, you could use a CSS stylesheet for your space to override the default fonts. This would affect all users viewing your Confluence space, and would need to be applied to every space in Confluence you were interested in pasting content from. If you do go this route, I'd recommend using a font-family in your stylesheet so that anyone accessing the page without Calibri (or whichever Microsoft-specific font) doesn't get an inconsistent experience - such as:
font-family: Calibri, sans-serif
For Jira, there's not as straightforward of a way to apply custom CSS. Many methods are discussed here , primarily using Jira's announcement banner. There are also a few apps on the Marketplace that help apply custom CSS as well.
However - I do highly recommend tweaking Office's default paste behavior instead of modifying Jira/Confluence directly. Changing the fonts for the whole application might be troublesome for other users, or change the look of some pages in undesirable ways. There's also the possibility that the header styles won't match what Outlook/Word are doing in the rest of your document, even if the fonts are a match.
