      Atlassian Update - 30 January 2024

      Hi everyone,

      This is Charlie from the Confluence team. Thank you for your interest in this suggestion.

      We're considering this suggestion as a potential addition to our longer-term roadmap. We intend to review this request in about 12 months time, at which point we'll provide any relevant updates.

      For the near future, we've decided to prioritise other areas of Confluence Data Center.

      You can read more about how we prioritise what to implement here.

      To learn more about our recent investments in Confluence Data Center, please check our public roadmap and our dashboards containing recently resolved issues, and current work and future plans.

      Kind regards,
      Confluence Data Center

      Exported a page to Word, and this is at the top of the resulting HTML file (when opened in a text editor):

      Message-ID: <117338914.3.1343020657541.JavaMail.atlassian@Atlassians-MacBook-Air.local>
      Subject: Exported From Confluence
      MIME-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: multipart/related; 
      Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
      Content-Location: file:///C:/exported.html

      The file is not a valid Word document, in fact it rather seems to be a .eml or .mht file. It is basically coincidental that Microsoft Word can open the file. A major problem with even this is that *file:///C:/* prefix is added to each content element (images, etc), regardless to the operating system/browser that you use it for export. This path is not even valid on most Windows machines for such exports.


      A work around exists - export the page as a PDF, and convert the PDF to Microsoft Word Format:

      1. Export the page to PDF. Once you do this, you can follow this documentation to convert it to .doc.
      2. Use this PDF to Word Doc Converter.
