There are two different page editors in Cloud: the new editor and Legacy. You have to choose them when you create a page you may see the error "Nested third-party macros are not supported inside MultiExcerpts" or something similar if you attempt to do any of the following

3rd party macros/plugins for Confluence Cloud are rendered using the Confluence Connect framework.

There are many limitations for Connect macros, especially in the areas of nesting and styling.
