Scroll PDF Exporter: using macros in static pages

Hi,

I am using the Scroll PDF Exporter to export my confluence pages as PDF. Therefor I want to include the associated version history page, I created for the actual page.

This version history is a child page, but not the only child page of the actual page. So I want to include this page with the include macro as a static page right after the title page of my PDF template.

Is there a way to use this macro within the template designer?

Thanks for your help

Ales

Hi Ales,

Yes, you can use the Scroll PDF Exporter placeholders in your static pages.

Simply create a new static page and insert the placeholder $include.getPage("include").

You can then change the position of this static page via drag&drop and on export the content of page with pagetitle "include" (as defined in the example above) will be rendered in the exported PDF file.

Does that help?

Best,
Nils

Thanks Nils,

I was aware of the placeholders and used them for my own metadata already, but I just didn't think of them in this case.. laugh
