How to adjust the width of what appears in the Excerpt Include Macro

Hi! I am looking to include a section of one page into another. I am using the Excerpt Macro, and within it the Excerpt Include macro. However, it is only showing the page title of my included page. I am looking to include more than that.


Or - I have tried using the Include Pages Macro. This would also work however I am unsure how to force it to a certain height (aka, give it a scroll bar). As of now, it just scrolls on forever.

I used the Excerpt Include macro at first, then couldn't widen its narrow width. I switched to Include Pages and, everything else being equal (I think?), it's wider, so it fulfilled my needs. Neither macro lets you control the container width. 

I've given up on these small, stupid idiosyncrasies in Confluence, and attribute it to corporate greed, because that's what it is: Why go FREE when you can collect a FEE with the Marketplace? 

Coming in 2022: "To make text bold, you will need to purchase the Bold Text Maker from the Atlassian Marketplace.
