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

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

Define the Template Settings

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

Once you have selected Edit, the template editor will open and you can define the Template Settings - it is in this section where you upload your Word file, choose the default export scope for the template and define any labels for template pre-selection:

 After this you can then navigate to the Export Properties tab and define the settings associated with how certain content is handled in the export:

Within this section it is also possible to define which export properties will be visible in the export dialogue (when selecting "Show details"). To ensure specific export properties remain unavailable in the export dialogue, simply enable the lockicon for the export property:
