Create a PDF in Another Language
To export a Confluence page written in a language other than English, you'll need the necessary font for that language.
Upload a Font File to Confluence
- Find the appropriate font file:
Windows users:All font files in Windows are stored in a directory called:
Unix users:All font files in Unix are stored in:
- Microsoft True Type core fonts such as Verdana can be downloaded from this page: http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/
- Copy the font file into a temporary folder, for example a folder on your desktop.
- Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
then choose PDF Export Language Support.
- Upload the file you copied in step 2.
- Choose Install.
- The only font files supported are true type fonts and true type collections. The accepted file extensions are *.ttf and *.ttc.
- Confluence can only store one font file at any one time. Please create a collection to install more than one *.ttf files.
- We recommend that you use Unicode font Verdana for correct character encoding and exporting to PDF.
If the font file size is bigger than your current attachment size limit, you will not be able to upload it. Please increase the attachment size limit temporarily and re-upload again. An improvement of the error messaging is tracked at CONF-24706 Resolved
- To make use of an installed font in your PDF Export style sheet (CSS) refer to it by the font-family ConfluenceInstalledFont.
