Wrong Heading Level in Section/Column Macros

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the details.
    Would it be possible to send us a XML export of a page and the template you're using?

    We'll then have a closer look and will come back to you as soon as possible.

    Hi Nils,

    thank you for your response. I have attached a sample confluence xml file. As you can see there are to headings with h1 level. Using the standard export without the "section as tables" the heading level is shown correctly as h1. The error is created when activating "section as tables" option. The heading level is then changed to h2.

    Hi Alex,

    thanks for contacting us.

    Unfortunately this is a known limitation, heading levels are not preserved in section/column macros. There's currently no possibility to change this behavior. However, there's already a JIRA issue: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-479

    Any progress on this issue of "heading levels are not preserved in section/column macros"? The headings (H1, H2, etc) I put into Section/Column content are rendered as "Normal, bold" paragraphs in the exported Word file, and therefore not noted as headings at all (for example, are missing in the Table of Contents).

    Hi Bill, 

    Thanks for your reply. 

    As yet, there is no new information that I can provide you for this open improvement. However, I will bring this topic up with the product team at our next roadmap planning meeting for Scroll Office. 

    I will then be able to provide you with a further update on the issue status and provide more information regarding when this is likely to be focused on. I will update this post once I have received further information.

    I hope this helps. 

    Cheers, Thomas (K15t Software)
