    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    At the moment, we have an open improvement for supporting the addition of tables in the Document Sections in the template editor. You can track this here: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-2005. It remains possible to copy and paste a table into the editor but we do not offer any styling/formatting options and therefore do not recommend this.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to provide a time-frame in regards to when this improvement may be focused on. However, please sign up to our JIRA (via https://k15t.jira.com/) in order to watch and comment on this issue. We'll then send a notification for every status update. Currently, there is not a set date for when we will be completely dropping support for deprecated templates and therefore it still remains possible to use the deprecated templates to export.

    There is not a function to insert HTML/CSS into v4 templates and there are no concrete plans to focus on introducing the option for CSS into version 4 templates. We introduced the new graphical template designer because we collected lots of feedback from our users who had problems using the old template editor, as they found it was extremely difficult to create templates without CSS and HTML knowledge. With the new template designer, we focused on improving the user experience and aimed to allow everyone in the company – including those with no coding skills. It may be in the future that we introduce some functionality that makes it possible to add CSS to the final result (e.g. an 'Advanced' mode).

    For our older Scroll PDF Exporter v3.x, the content formatting section in the server variant of the Exporter made it nearly impossible to migrate templates from one library to another (because we simply didn't know which CSS (or HTML) rules our customers had applied). Given the formatting possibilities in v3, we are continually introducing new features to the template editor in v4 with every release and we hope that we can meet most of our customers' needs.

    We also have an open improvement for supporting more columns in header and footer, like you mentioned and you can view this here: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-2248

    I hope this information helps.

    Cheers, Thomas (K15t)

    Hi Thomas,

    I can see you have a lot of tickets tracking issues, have you an overall ticket tracking all the issues from the upgrade?

    Do you have a road map for when you kill off the templates I am using now?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your reply.

    We don't have a public issue that tracks all the issues related to the move from v3.x to v4.x. and we just ask our users to follow the related ticket(s) for their specific issue(s). At the moment there is no set date for when v3 deprecated templates will have support fully dropped.

    Recently, since the release of Scroll PDF Exporter v4.7, we have changed v3 templates from being editable to read-only as a result of wanting to move towards the adoption of v4 templates but also due to the changes required for Confluence 7 (which involved an overhaul of our UI's). We are steadily adding features and functionality based on feedback from our users but would recommend migrating to v4 templates where possible.

    Thanks, Thomas (K15t)
