Learn about the differences between the Server and Cloud versions of Scroll Word Exporter.

Overview

Features

Scroll Macros 

When installing Scroll Word Exporter on Confluence Server/Data Center, the Scroll macros come bundled automatically and will be available after the installation. This differs to Confluence Cloud, where, to gain access to the Scroll Macros you would need to separately install the free Scroll Exporter Extensions app (after installing the macros will become available after a few minutes).

(warning)

On Cloud, this macro is not available.

Instead, use the Scroll Page Title dialog by going to the Page tools menu (•••)  > Set Scroll Page Title. You can read more about this here.

Scroll app specific macros

For users of Scroll Word Exporter 4.0.0 and older, you may have used Scroll app specific macros on your Confluence pages (eg. Scroll-Office-Ignore). Since EXP-32 we have made changes to these macros so they are not app-specific.(tick)

On Cloud, these macro are not yet available.
