Confluence Tables: Can you 'nest' Table Filter Macro w/Tab Page & Tab Container Macros?

Problem Statement: I have a 54 (more or less) row Confluence table where the rows can be quite large. The page this is on has Tabbed Pages inside of a Tab Container as each page represents a year's worth of weekly sprint information. I want to 'freeze' header rows on the table in the way you can in Excel. Atlassian help indicates that this can be achieved using the Table Filter Macro. I cannot figure out how to successfully nest all 3 macros to achieve the desired end result. 

One article said something about selecting "Table Options" at the bottom of the page. I don't have that on the individual tabbed pages.  Looking for guidance.

Hi @meetinghouse ,

Confluence Cloud doesn't allow bodied macro nesting - maybe that is your problem.

For example, to nest macros provided by the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app, we designed the Table Toolbox macro.

As I understand from your case, you need to nest several macros belonging to different vendors. So maybe the root of issue is in your hosting type.
