Cool, this will reduce Copy & Paste Content a lot, thanks.

Is this title below intentional or is there a typo? Reading the rest of the article indicates Except should be Excerpt.

How can I use multiple Except macros?

I've tried checking this out, but the font becomes smaller when you create an excerpt, which is not cool if you just want to avoid making multiple changes to the same text in different pages.

This is as it should be. Good to see Atlassian listening to its customers.

Can the excerpt contain a pdf file?

Stephen Ellwood November 10, 2021

Actually I have a question.  For the moment I have a Python script which writes a page containing a lot of tables which need individually referencing from other pages.  Since this was impossible up to now I also write each table as a separate page, so having 2 copies of each table in the database. Can you tell me the markup syntax of how to wrap each table in an excerpt macro so that I can now do what I want and have a single source of truth which is one page with all of the tables in it?

Dommage que le style des caractères n'est pas respectés.

Le même texte encodé dedans et en dehors d'une telle macro n'a pas le même résultat à l'affichage!!

Le texte est plus petit si intégré dans cette macro!

Thank you for adding this as a basic feature!  

Note: this doesn't fully have the identical functions as the paid MultiExcerpt App, because it is limited to the same space (cannot share across spaces).

Hi @Martin Sauter

 

Thanks for taking the time to add more context and share examples alongside your feedback. We know that a subset of customers may have difficulties if there's no drop down list with excerpts names. 

Adding a drop down list was considered and discussed during the development process. We decided that we would put it in a V2 for a future update, and give customers value with the version we have today. 

 

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have future questions, I'm always here to listen and support however I can !

@Sekajipo Taplahgreat feature, but is there any chance that this font size issue will be addressed soon?

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-66591

This 'bug' actually prevents users in our company to use excerpt macro.

I just posted a question on this subject:

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-send-a-page-including-an-excerpt-macro-using-Python-Rest/qaq-p/1939010#M233613

I would like to automatically create a page with multiple excerpts but have not found a way to do it.  Any help would be appreciated.

We have need for this as well on Server. I've been looking for a way to do this for a while, and I was super excited to see this article - until I realized it was Cloud only.

@Alexander Pappert , it appears only in the Cloud version of Confluence. The author introduced himself as being on the Confluence Cloud team, and the post itself has been labelled "cloud" and "confluence-cloud". Yes, multiple excerpts in Confluence Server is not yet there, I can confirm from my own experience.

Is this feature for the Excerpt Macro version dependent? If yes, then which version do I require to utilize it? 

Currently running 7.13.7 and there is no “Name” field option. 

Please advise.

Thank you

William
