Confluence's native PDF output is crude, but what does that have to do
When I was using Confluence Server as my main authoring tool, I found
Scroll PDF Exporter's output up to my high standards. What sort of
problems did you have with tables?

So I either had to take a screen shot of the comments, or compare page versions to see what changed, and/or refer to a series of notification emails to try to figure out what changed. Is there really no way to see people's comments on the page while in edit mode?

I tried using the Scroll Office for pdf plugin as a conversion tool, but there were so many glitches in the conversion (especially with tables) that it was less labour-intensive to just copy and paste content from the confluence page into a word document, then make a pdf. Which is also crazy.
