Ah... actually, i've been exporting confluence content to Word first (using Scroll Office), THEN generating a pdf. That way, I was able to control the page breaks.

Still couldn't get the content to export to Word without far too many formatting errors; like fonts randomly switching from regular to bold. Scroll Office claimed it was either because I'd imported pre-formatted content into Confluence, but I recreated my page from scratch, but I was still having problems.

Just wondering if anyone has found a way to export from Confluence to Word or pdf and have it come out looking the way you want it to/formatted the same way it is on the Confluence page.

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.
