Content Auto Formatting - OFF

Confluence does something really annoying, which is auto formatting my content. It is very hard to manage.

When I export to PDF, it takes some areas which are "paragraph" as "heading 3".

Is there a way to switch this feature off please?

Thanks

Hi,

It may be late, but you may try the following:

Navigate to user profile > Settings > (From the left side bar) Editor

Then press Edit and "Disable Autoformatting".

Hi MPal,

I don't think you can turn the feature off per-se, but you can override the PDF styling when you export:

Hi Simon,

Is there a way to turn off the rich text formatting? Even when I edit content in confluence it sometimes puts linebreaks and stuff as it wishes.

Afraid not - the rich text/WYSIWYG editor can't be turned off while editing. There are quirks and bugs we are working on - hopefully it will improve over time.

You can always edit the source diectly with the Source Editor plugin, but it is tougher than the rich text editor:
