Exporting to PDF and other formats

The BMC Online Technical Documentation portal gives you the ability to generate PDF and Microsoft Word documents of single pages, and to create PDF exports of multiple pages in a space.

Creating PDF and Word exports

You can create a PDF of a page, a branch (a parent and children), an entire document set, or pages that contain a given label.  You can also create a Word document of the current page.

To export to PDF or Word

From the Tools menu in the upper-right, select:

  • Export to Word to export the current page to Word format
  • Export to PDF to export the current page to PDF format
  • Export branch to PDF to export the current page and its child pages to PDF format

XML and HTML exports

If you require an export in XML or HTML format, contact us.

      Apologies for any inconvenience.  We had to make a tweak this week.  Export to PDF should be fine now.

    I have the link and it seems to process the report (takes a few minutes and gives reasonable prompts. Then I get a message that says:

    Error exporting PDF Please try again or contact our support team.

    If you contact our support team, please send us the error ZIP file, which contains information about the error. We recommend that you also send us a Confluence support ZIP. See our docs for information about how to create one.

    I'm going to try from another computer. Please let me know if something else is going on.

    Thank you

      Hi James.  Sorry about the trouble - are you still having this issue?  If so, what page are you trying to export (if not this one)?

    HI Export to pdf link is not visible to me. I have exported 2 documents in pdf but to export the rest of the pdfs the link is not available. Please let me know if there is some policy governing the limit of pdfs to be exported.

      Hi Urvashi,

      There is no limit to the number of PDFs one can export, but permission settings on certain doc sets may be preventing you from exporting.  What page are you trying to export?
