      Summary

      Tasklist checkbox displays as a bullet point when the page is exported to Word or HTML

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Login to Confluence
      2. Create a page with task list macro
      3. Export to Word or HTML

      Expected Results

      Checkboxes displayed (either as empty or checked in, depending on how it displayed on the page)

      Notes

      • An example Word document is attached to this issue: testnewpage.doc
      • Comparing the page source shown below with the Confluence Storage Format, it is possible to see the similarities that may have caused the substitution of checkboxes for bullet points by the PDF plugin.

      Workaround

      The tested workaround below worked for PDF exports using Confluence 6.15.6 and Confluence 6.15.7:

      1. Go to General Configuration > PDF Stylesheet
      2. Click the Edit button
      3. Insert the code below
        ul.inline-task-list > li {
            list-style: none;
            list-style-type: none;
            list-style-position: initial;
            list-style-image: initial;
            padding-left: 18px;
            margin-bottom: 2px;
            margin-left: -18px;
            background-repeat: no-repeat;
            background-repeat-x: no-repeat;
            background-repeat-y: no-repeat;
            background-size: 1em 1em;
            background-position: 0 1px;
            background-position-x: 0px;
            background-position-y: 1px;

        }

            background-repeat-x: no-repeat;
            background-repeat-y: no-repeat;
            background-size: 1em 1em;
            background-position: 0 1px;
