How to use Export Schemes - blueprints for your exports

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.

Best Practice: Managing versioned documentation in Confluence

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.

5 Reasons to Use the Scroll PDF Exporter

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.
