How do I make a drop down box in confluence (to put inside a table cell) ?

I have a table where I record messages. The message size is sometimes big and makes the height of a row very large, just because of one cell. To reduce the size of the cell, I want to put the text in a drop down box instead. Ideally, this contents of this drop down box should be searchable (edit- using ctrl+f in that page).
Is this possible in confluence ? If this needs some minor amount of coding, can you please give me the code
for it ?

thanks !

It's not a dropdown box, but maybe the expand macro is what you are looking for...

Is there some way to expand all (or a set of) such macros in a page by clicking one magical button ? Thanks !

Checkout this plugin ( as a possible solution.



Costs money - This add-on is sold by a third-party vendor. Isn't there a simple, existing solution already ?
