Cannot do site-wide search for macro parameter values used on pages (in particular, the name of a page used in 'include' and 'exerpt-include' macro).

      Description

      I often need to search a Confluence site to see where a specific macro parameter is used — in particular the name of a page used in 'include' and 'exerpt-include' macro.

      In Confluence 3.5, I used to be able to do this by simply searching the name of my inclusion page in Confluence, which would list the inclusion page itself and all other pages containing 'include' and 'excerpt-include' pages that included/referenced this page (as a macro parameter).

      For example:

      • To search for all inclusion macros that include the page called "_QRG_Colour", I just entered the following text into the search box:
        "include:_QRG_Colour"

      This no longer works in Confluence 4.0, or at least I can't find a way of making it work. Please restore the functionality or document a workaround. It is essential for maintaining technical documentation.
