Here's K15t Software http://www.k15t.com/'s weekly social web round-up for technical writers, information architects, and content strategists. This week's top story from our blog: "Export Beautiful Code Examples from Confluence to PDF"
We're happy to announce that Scroll PDF Exporter now supports syntax highlighting for code examples. It had been our top-voted feature, and it was a bit tricky to implement, but now exporting code examples should work for everyone just right.
Is it possible to have the built-in PDF export option and the Scroll PDF Exporter link available simultaneously in Confluence's Tools menu? Yes, it's actually quite easy to provide both PDF export methods. Learn how in this pro tip.
Is there a quick, easy, and reliable way to migrate a Scroll PDF Exporter template between systems? In this blog post, I'll introduce a very useful feature for migrating PDF templates between Confluence instances – from a Confluence development system to the production server, for example.

Here's K15t Software http://www.k15t.com/'s weekly social web round-up for technical writers, information architects, and content strategists. This week's top story from the Valiantys blog: "Scroll Office: Author in Confluence, add styles in Word"
Did you know that K15t's Scroll Exporters for Confluence are not only convenient for human users, but also for machines and for continuous integration? This blogpost explains how to automatically obtain the latest PDF export files, Word documents, or any other supported export format using the Scroll Exporters' REST interface.
The new (German) Content Management System study of tekom http://www.technical-communication.org compares wiki-based documentation using Confluence combined with Scroll content management add-ons https://marketplace.atlassian.com/vendors/7016 with 17 traditional content management systems for technical documentation.
We at K15t Software use Confluence for everything: to share news and knowledge in-house, for external communications and our website, to collaborate with customers, to manage our documentation, to create quotations for our services, and even for employee contracts. All these different kinds of documents need to have their own individual appearance when exported to PDF and printed. With Scroll Exporters versions 2.x, entering the correct export settings used to take a great many clicks. And so we sat down and thought about how we could make this easier for users. The result: the Scroll Export Schemes. With these, you can export Confluence content just the way you want it: defined once and exported in about two clicks. See the screencast at the bottom to see how it works in detail, and how you benefit.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the term dogfooding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_your_own_dog_food – using your own products in-house. We at K15t really do eat our own dog food: We employ Scroll Versions to manage the documentation of our Scroll add-ons http://www.k15t.com/software in Confluence. As a technical writer, I use Scroll Versions in my everyday work because it's a great tool. But at the same time, I leverage the dual benefits of dogfooding: It provides an opportunity both to improve the software and to develop best practices based on my own experience with the tool. In this blog post, I would like to share my experience with you and describe our best practices.
The question sometimes comes up "why should we use the Scroll PDF Exporter, when Confluence already has a built-in PDF exporter? That's a perfectly fair question, and I've been asked it enough, that I thought it would be a good topic for a blog post. To be honest, it also made me think hard exactly what I wanted to say. So, here's what I came up with. The built-in export function in Confluence works fine - it's just basic. But... if you want some control over the look and feel of your exported documents if you want your documentation to reflect the effort you put into writing it if you prefer writing to spending your time looking for workarounds, then, that's why you need Scroll PDF Exporter.
