Comment: Migrated to Confluence 5.3

To export a Confluence page written in a language other than English, you need to install the necessary font for that language. This means that you need to upload the font file to Confluence, as described below.

Uploading a Font File to Confluence

  1. Find the appropriate font file:
    • Windows users: All font files in Windows are stored in a directory called:
      No Format
      C:\WINDOWS\Fonts
    • Unix users: All font files in Unix are stored in:
      No Format
      /usr/share/fonts
    • Microsoft True Type core fonts such as Verdana can be downloaded from this page: http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/
  2. Copy the font file into a temporary folder, for example a folder on your desktop.
  3. Go to the 'PDF Language Support' screen in the Confluence Administration Console and upload the file you copied in step 2.
  4. Click 'Install'.

Notes

  • The only font files supported are true type fonts and true type collections. The accepted file extensions are *.ttf and *.ttc.
  • We recommend that you use Unicode font Verdana for correct character encoding and exporting to PDF.
