Does Multiexcerpt support hidden excerpt?

Does the Multiexcerpt add-on support having an excerpt be hidden on the page but visible on another page when used with the Multiexcerpt Include macro? I believe the Excerpt macro has this feature.

Apparently multiexcerpt doesn't have this feature for OnDemand. But I ended up nesting the multiexcerpt inside a HTML comment macro, and setting that to "hidden."

Hello Erica,

I just tried it and it worked.

  • Page A with hidden multiexcerpt X
    --> X is not displayed
  • Page B with multiexcerpt-include X of Page A
    --> X is displayed


Thanks Kirstin. How do you set the Multiexcerpt as hidden? The Edit screen I get does not have an option to set it as hidden (as the Excerpt macro does). See screenshot below:

Could this be a version problem?
We're using Multiexerpt 4.9.1 of Artemis Software on Confluence 5.4.3.

On our system it looks quite different:

Sorry, I'm not able to paste the screenshot :((
How did you do this?

I used the upload button (looks like an up arrow).

Are you using Confluence OnDemand or the server version?

We have our own instance of Confluence.
