# TOC macro exclude and include parameters are not working

## Description

steps to reproduce:

1. create a page with a few headings, some of them with ":" and some without

2. place a TOC macro on the page and set include to "[:]"

3. place another TOC macro on the page and set exclude to "[:]"

4. export the page
expected:
The first TOC macro displays only headings with ":" in it
The second TOC macro displays only headings with no ":" in it
actual:
The first TOC macro displays no headings at all
The second TOC macro displays all headings

Attached is an example page and the corresponding PDF export. This behaviour occurs for both Cloud and Server versions of the app.

None
