Can you find text on a Confluence page that is in an Expand macro?

I have a user with a long page of text.  Apparently, they use Ctrl-F to locate parts on the page.  

She was thinking of putting some parts into Expand macros, but that would prevent them from using Ctrl-F to find the particular word/section they need.  Is there a macro or something that would let them find words hidden in an Expand macro?

(A regular page search does still find the page containing the word.  And I'm going to go look at what she is doing and make some "let's divide this page up" recommendations.  But I thought I'd ask.)

Thank you.
