Can you set the Expand Macro to be expanded by default?

Using Confluence Cloud, the default Expand Macro will be in the 'collapsed' state when viewing the page.

Is there a way to set the Expand Macro to always show the information within the macro as default?

I would ideally be able to navigate to a page full of already expanded macros and be able to collapse them if I saw fit to do so. Otherwise the macros would stay expanded.

Unfortunately, after some investigation there seems to be a related ticket on Atlassian's Jira for this functionality, however it is 4 years old and has only 2 votes:

+1 But you cant vote for this feature. Any TOP page gets the page tree macro, and all of them cant be expanded at default.

Easy way to do this:

Set your Start Depth to a really high number like 15 and it will auto expand everything.
