Define the default export settings

You can configure the default export settings of your export templates. The settings define the scope of the export (i.e. what Confluence pages gets exported), how certain macros are rendered, and how other elements are displayed in your exports.

These are the export settings that, by default, will be used for this export template. Every time a user exports using this template, in the export dialog they can also override these settings on a one-off basis for their export.


If you do not want to allow your users to change specific settings, you can lock them, so they'll be hidden in the exporter dialog.

Change the export settings

You can change the default settings at Space tools > AppsScroll Word Exporter > then click the actions icon (•••) for name of the export template you want to edit > Edit.
