    Hi Michael,

    this is build out-of-the box into our exporters. However, it is possible to build a so-called custom "page selection strategy" that defines which pages (and in which order) they are exported. We have done that in the past as consulting projects, but we also want to include that into our exporters eventually.

    WRT to documentation/product info: Thanks for the hint, we are aware of this. Therefore we've hired a technical writer very recently and we are looking forward to provide that information on our website soon.

    Thanks for the response, Stefan!

    I'm relieved to hear that you've done that before. To know it is possible (and was practical enough for some customers to finance it) is a relief. It also seems like a tremendous opportunity to take Confluence to the next level as an integrated knowledge management and publishing platform.  Would solve some pretty big problems.

    Fantastic! Didn't mean to nudge too hard, but congratulations on expanding your team. It's good to see y'all growing and expanding. I'm sure your on-staff tech writer will be a font of feature requests and possibly money-making ideas for enhancements.

    This feature would be very helpful in my work. I would like to be able to, for example, extract an employee manual from a business systems manual and put topics into a different order and hierarchy.

    Hi,

    for the time being I am using numberings for the page titles in order to force the wiki to sort pages the way I want. In the export we simply overwrite them with the {Scroll Pagetitle} macro.

    Works perfectly :-)

    Is this already included in the PDF Exporter?

    I would like to do the reordering based on labels, first pages with label A, then pages with label B, and so on.

    unfortunately the feature isn't implemented yet. As it's tracked in our JIRA, I'd kindly ask you to vote and comment the corresponding issue: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-347

    Besides there's a related improvement to be implemented in Scroll Versions: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-1026

    Please sign up at https://k15t.jira.com/secure/Signup!default.jspa to watch, to comment or to vote for this issue. The more votes an issue has, the more likely it is that it will implemented in one of the next releases.

    Cheers,
