Due to the way macros work in Confluence Cloud, there are limitations when nesting other macros in Childtabs and Tabs (previously Localtabs).
We tested most Confluence system macros and list the results here. Confluence emoticons are impacted as well.
A possible improvement is being sought by Atlassian https://trello.com/c/phktiadW/201-new-editor-extensibility-framework-to-enable-nested-bodied-macros-use-cases
More info will be added. If you run into issues using a third party macro, do not hesitate to contact us via the bitvoodoo Support Portal.
