Create and manage custom templates

Thomas Rough

Custom templates let you export Confluence content to PDF with full control over the content's look and feel.

Manage existing templates

Users can manage templates in two locations:

  • Confluence Administrators can manage default and global templates on the global template management screen at General configuration > Scroll PDF Exporter > Templates.
  • Space Administrators can manage all available templates for a particular space by navigating to that space, and clicking Space tools > Add-ons > Scroll PDF Exporter.

The Type column displays the type of the template. There are four types of template:

Name Type Description
Default template PROVIDED BY ADD-ON

Default templates are bundled with Scroll PDF Exporter – they can be used in all spaces, and cannot be edited or deleted, but can be hidden via advanced plugin properties.

Global template GLOBAL

Global templates can be used in all spaces. Confluence Administrators can create, edit and delete them on the global template management screen.

Space template   Space templates are only used in the space where they were created. They can be edited or deleted by the Space Administrator that created them, and by all Confluence Administrators.
Deprecated template DEPRECATED

Deprecated templates are templates created in Scroll PDF Exporter 3 and earlier. You can edit and export deprecated templates, but you can't make new ones.

We recommend migrating deprecated templates to Scroll PDF Exporter 4, as support will be dropped completely in a future version.

In the Actions column, you can carry out several actions to manage templates:

Action Relevant templates Explanation
Edit Space, Deprecated, Global

Confluence Administrators can edit all space, deprecated and global templates, and Space Administrators can edit space templates they have created and all deprecated templates.

Copy Default, Global, Space

All Space Administrators and Confluence Administrators can copy all templates. When Space Administrators copy global templates, they are created as space templates.

Download All Download a template to import it in another instance or space.
