PDF export displays all the options from a select HTML tag

Hello,

I'm using the custom HTML macro to create dropdown lists using the <select><option> tags:

<select><option value='a'>Option a</option>

<option value='b'>Option b</option>

</select>

What's happenign is when I export the page to PDF, all of the option values are being displayed:

'OptionaOptionbetc'

I only want the PDF to display the option that is currently selected. How can I do this?

Hi Chris,

I guess, since your using a Custom HTML Macro, dropdowns are not supported in the Confluence Export to PDF. PDFs are generated with iText, a Java Library for creating PDF documents. Normally this library does have some support for forms. However depending on how Atlassian implemented the export, this will or won't work.

To be sure I'd check with their support at http://support.atlassian.com

Best,

Maarten
