Suppressing automatic promotion of deeper headings

    Hi Alessandro, 

    Thanks for your post. 

    Unfortunately, at the moment there is not an option that will prevent our heading algorithm from being used during the export process. As you are aware from the referenced document link, all our exporters use this algorithm to create a sensible hierarchy as Confluence does not enforce proper ordering of headings. 

    This means when Scroll PDF Exporter parses a tree of wiki pages it converts both the page hierarchy and the headings within a page into a hierarchical section and sets the highest level of heading on a page when it detects the first heading. In your use case, it means your heading 5's and 6's become level 3 headings. 

    Currently, we have an open improvement that pertains to introducing an option that will allow users to disable the algorithm. You can track this here: I would recommend signing up to our JIRA (via in order to watch, comment and/or vote on this issue.  You'll then receive a notification for every status update.

    I'm already watching that issue (which I've found only after asking this question).

    Thank you for the update, Thomas.
