Eh?  The docs I'm reading say how to use the pair of macros fine.  What are you reading?

Pretty easy, but a two-step process.

  1. Add the Excerpt macro on the page with the text you want to reuse
  2. Put the text you want in the body of the Exclude macro
  3. Put the Excerpt Include macro on the target page where you want to display the reused text

Source page: insert the <<Excerpt>> macro:  https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf59/excerpt-macro-792499102.html

Destination page: insert the <<Excerpt Include>> macro https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf59/excerpt-include-macro-792499101.html
