How to display content only in 'view' mode (and so, not visible in 'edit' mode)?

AIM: I am looking for a way to make my content visible to everyone, but whenever any person tried to edit that confluence page i.e. goes into edit mode, some specific fields from the page must become uneditable for him.

Approaches: I saw this post: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-display-content-only-in-edit-mode-and-so-not-visible-in/qaq-p/701884. And I want to do exactly opposite of this.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

There's no function for this directly, but you can do it.  Let's say you have three blocks of text, on your page which are simply

Alice would like a pet cat

Bob would like a pet dog

Charlie would like a pet rabbit

You can "protect" the middle line by

  • Creating a new page somewhere else, called say "Bob"
  • Content: Bob would like a pet dog
  • Restriction: only you can edit it (everyone can see it)
  • Rewrite the original page as 
Alice would like a pet cat

{include: Bob}

Charlie would like a pet rabbit

People editing the original page won't be able to edit the text they see in view.  It's not perfect though - they could remove it or change the target page.
