The export takes exactly the same layout as in the page. You need to change the page layout if you want to do that.

In my version of wiki font types, size and attributes (e.g. italic) for wiki page and word export are different.
Here you go print screens.

WIKI page

WORD export

1. Is it possible to have it the same way?
2. Can I remove link [EDIT] only from print and Word-PDF Export?

The export merely creates an html file of the wiki page and converts it to a word document. It doesn't place any styles inline. What this means is that if you have a header style 3 (ie. <h3>) in your page and you export, however you define a header style 3 in word will be used. At this point it isn't possible to export the css and inline styles necessary to create an identical word document.

As for the edit link. That should be reported as a change request to our support team.

Cheers,
Kevin

But the same problem is with PDF export. As you can see bellow PDF layout is different then orginal Wiki Page layout. It is rather similar to WORD Export then orginal Wiki Page.

As

Printing LAYOUT is similar to orginal WIKI Page layout, and it looks OK.

Kevin,
but what about PDF export?
Document created by Export to PDF doesn't takes layout from wiki page.
Font types, size and attributes (e.g. italic) for wiki page and PDF export are different.
It is similar to document created by Export to MS Word.

If I print Wiki page to printer everything is OK.


Wiki Page:

Export to PDF page

Marek,

The same applies to export to PDF. The export functionality is quite simple. An html file is created from the wiki page. This page is converted to a word/pdf file. The only way to get styles would be to export all the css on the page into the word or pdf file.

Perhaps, if you would like this to work this way, you coudl open a support ticket to make a change request.

Cheers,
Kevin

Kevin,

I check it and found that export to WORD/PDF create ExportTo.aspx file from Wiki page. But this page has it own layout. Css styles are different then on wiki pages. If I copy wiki page content and paste it to WORD it looks similar to oryginal wiki page layout.
