The Confluence Export to PDF functionality does not work with add-ons that generate dynamic content. When a page containing certain macros is exported to PDF the content of those macros will not show in the PDF. We have logged this issue with Atlassian

This currently affects these Adaptavist add-ons:

To export your Confluence page to PDF we suggest you use your browsers built in functionality until a fix is in place for this. This is how you can use your browser's print function to save webpages as PDFs.

By Operating System

Windows 10+

  • Got to File > Print
  • In the Printer > Name dropdown choose 'Microsoft Print to PDF'

  • Give the file a name and save in your preferred location.

Windows 8 and Earlier

Earlier Windows systems do not have a built in print to PDF function but you can use Adobe Acrobat or a PDF converter program by following these instructions from Digital Trends.

Alternatives to the DOPDF program recommended by Digital Trends are discussed by How To Geek in their explanation of printing to PDF in Windows.


Mac's have built in functionality to print to PDF

  • Open the document, web page, or file you want to print to a PDF
  • Click the File menu and select “Print”, or just hit Command+P
  • Look for the “PDF” button in the lower left corner, click on that pull-down menu, and select “Save as PDF”
  • Click “Save” in the save dialogue box, and save the file to whatever location you want (Documents is default)

There are other advanced options as described by OSX Daily

By Browser


This browser has its own print to PDF function on both Windows and Mac. See the Adjustable Print Settings in these instructions from Google Chrome Support.
