>Not tagged. Never do that. Tagged PDFs should be used unless there is a problem with using the setting. They are required for PDF reviews, 508 accessibility, Acrobat editing and export*. *Non-tagged PDFs tend to treat each line as a separate paragraph, while tagged PDFs "remember" the paragraph

The HTML Macro doesn't really make much sense since the switch from wiki markup to XHTML in Confluence 4. It's disabled by default. In Confluence Server, you can install the Source Editor plugin and paste HTML. You can also copy rendered HTML in a browser and paste it in the regular Confluence

More signs that Atlassian is a screwed-up company: they resolve bugs as Fixed when they have not in fact fixed them. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-39129 Or they resolve them as Won't Fix on the theory that if they haven't fixed them in a few years, no one cares.

I have found that RTF is a much more robust and dependable format than Word .docx format. No surprise there. We always used Tags in PDF, so we have a relatively seamless exchange in formats. > On Apr 18, 2018, at 12:57, Böðvar Björgvinsson wrote: > > Mike, > Thanks. Good

1. Word is the only supported import format. 2. If you use the standard Heading1 etc. it can break things up into topics, but subtopics will be sorted alphabetically. 3. Auto-numbered paragraphs are converted to literal text. 4. Cross-references are lost. It's bizarre to me that Atlassian doesn't

If you're going to convert to Word from PDF, you might want to used tagged PDF for the conversion. Original PDF was not interested in the data, only its position. PDFs purpose is page layout. The idea of PDF is to create a document that looks exactly the same on every computer screen, with no

The test shouldn't be to find out if they have Advanced knowledge of FM...it should be an advanced knowledge of what you USE in FM for your book of work. Example...I'd fail on the use for GREP... but in my environment, GREP would be of no purpose. You aren't Adobe and looking for a support
