Expand macro - How to Expand all on Confluence page?

Hello, is there any way to expand all the Expand macros within one confluence page?

We have some pages that has a lot of information and the page content has been divided by using Expand macro. 

Now the problem is that when we are using the Find- shortcut (ctrl + F) the data that is entered inside the macro does not appear on the search without expanding all the macros...

I have tried the book mark- thing without success...

Thanks in advance! :)

Hi Maria,

There is no way to expand all by default with built in confluence functionality. You maybe able to script this using something like scriptrunner but it would need development work.

Alternatively the way i would do this is for everything in the excerpts make a unique page. Then I would make two parent pages, one that uses excerpts, and inside the excerpt us the include page macro (i think is the name) and another one that is just all include page macros. That way you get both options but you only need to edit the data once!



Hello Clark, and thanks for your answer. 

I will go with the include- macro option :) Thanks!

If the Expand macro had a property to allow it to be set open or closed that would be incredibly useful.

Is this the forum to make a feature request?

This is a question I get asked frequently by our clients.  At present I have to explain that you either get a page with everything collapsed or you don't have expand/collapse capability.
