If you can only use one page label why are you allowed to enter more than one?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Properties Macro

In the help article it states you can only use one page label and one properties ID, however you can use multiple page labels. I am asking because I am attempting to pull a properties box from multiple pages with different page labels but the same properties ID.

If you mean what I think you do, it's just because of the way the macros configuration code handles the field.

I'm afraid you will need multiple properties boxes here - one per label.e

hey thanks for answering - so maybe a little better, an example - I have properties ID "highlights" on a number of release notes across the space. My dev teams release multiple product features on their systems as part of overall business features. I snag the headlines or highlights on the release notes because they list out for each project what they have released. On the other side of things, they have a properties report that shows only their release notes. I was trying to have the business side of things pull in the "highlights" boxes despite the page but since page properties will bring in the page regardless if there is anything on it, I was trying to restrict to dev teams that I know work on the project. Hence the desire to filter by multiple pages.

The only way I've seen to make it work is to add an additional label to the notes but realize that unless I keep changing the labels I will have a perpetual list for as long as the space exists.
