TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Scroll Office exports Word. Scroll PDF Exporter is the plugin you need
to publish professional-looking PDFs from Confluence source.
You can control page breaks, though as with any other topic-oriented
tool you don' t get a preview of where they will be while editing as
you would with a page-oriented tool such as FrameMaker or Word.
Since Confluence is a web application, it can't use Acrobat Pro.
Printing a Confluence topic from your browser using Acrobat Pro would
not give good results.
