To export a Confluence page written in a language other than English, you'll need the necessary font for that language. 

You can raise a support ticket at, asking Atlassian to perform this function for you.

You will need to provide your own Font (or Font Collection) to be uploaded to your instance. Confluence can only store one font file at any one time, to be able to export a document with all font styles, a Font Collection (TTC) must be provided.

Confluence Cloud users do not have access to this functionality. The Atlassian Support team will need to access this URL:


Upload a Font File to Confluence

  1. 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:
  2. Copy the font file into a temporary folder, for example a folder on your desktop.
  3. Error rendering macro 'excerpt-include'

    User 'null' does not have permission to view the page.

     then choose PDF Export Language Support.

  4. Upload the file you copied in step 2.
  5. 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.
  • For symbols, if the other fonts do not work, try Seguisym

  • 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 - Getting issue details... STATUS

  • To make use of an installed font in your PDF Export style sheet (CSS) refer to it by the font-family ConfluenceInstalledFont.
