How to create a template

Follow these steps to access the OOE configuration settings:

  1. Click on the "Settings" button in the top right-hand corner of your Confluence page.

  2. Click on the "General configuration" menu item.

  3. Once the side navigation appears, scroll down to the "OneOffixx Exporter Plugin Configuration" section, then click on the "Templates" menu item.

  4. Type in the new template name you wish to create, then click on the "Add" button.

  5. Click on the "Configuration" button next to the template you want to edit.

Click on the "Edit" button to edit your template.
Click on the "Preview" button to go back to the preview page.


  1. Preview

    The first page in the Template Creator User Interface is the "Preview" page. It shows you the look of your defined template, in this case it's the "Default Template", which automatically gets created when no other template is available.

  2. Edit

    You are able to define 5 different sections in the "Edit" page:

    • Header for the Frontpage

    • Footer for the Frontpage

    • Content for the Frontpage

    • Header for each additional page

    • Footer for each additional page

    The header and footer are always divided into three rows and three columns.

    In each of these sections you can insert a field, where you can choose between "Text", "Placeholders" and "Images".

    If a row is empty, it won't be displayed in the exported document.

Sections in Edit mode

Fields can be added to the template by clicking on the "Add Field" button.

Select from the dropdown menu what content your field should include:

  • Images (Add Images in the ImagePlaceholder section first).

  • Text.

  • Placeholder (Add Placeholders in the Placeholder section first).


Fields behavior:

  • Empty fields can be merged by clicking in between them.

  • Images can be resized by clicking and dragging the bar below the image.


Frontpage Tap:

On this page you can define what content should be displayed on the Front Page. At the moment you have to write the tag of the placeholder itself, but in a future version you'll be able to choose placeholders from a dropdown menu.


The following options will be available when clicking on the "Options" button:

  • Table of Contents - The exported file contains a Table of Contents page if this options is checked. This page is displayed after the Front Page.

  • Front Page - The exported file contains a front page if this option is checked.

  • Edit Mode - This options enables you to write your own HTML, thus not using the UI to create a template.

Note: Some errors may occur when changes were made in edit mode and then switching back to UI mode.
