How do I put instructional text into a template using the confluence editor?

How do I put instructional text into a template using the confluence editor.  I see it in other templates but when I create my own templates I see no feature do anything more than on any other confluence page. 

When I do a Google search I cannot find up to date documentation on the Confluence editor, it all seems to point to earlier versions which is useless to me. The old template editor seemed to have way more features that mine.  Is myetup wrong or is it now much more dumb than it used to be?

Placeholder text (aka "Instructional text") can be used from within a template as follows:

  1. The template must be in edit mode
  2. Enter the macro command mode "/" followed by "placeholder"
  3. Select the "placeholder text" macro
    see screen capture below:

Hi @Stephen Ellwood 

To include the instructional text you must click on "+" and when displaying select the option "placeholder text". In the box you include the text you need to show and press enter. Once the template is configured, in the view of this and in the creation of a page through the template created, the placeholder text macro will appear visible.

I hope it helps you.

Thanks for the answer.  This seems to work. It seems that it was simply the change in terminology that fooled me.
