Is it not possible to insert an Expand within a numbered and bulleted list? Whenever I insert, it keeps getting inserted at the end of the bullet list.
@Alex Koxaras _Relational_ - Hi Alex, he is not asking can he put a bulleted list in an Expand. He wants to put the Expand within a bulleted list. I want to do this too. I have a nice compact list but would like to elaborate on some points, but only have that visible if someone clicks on the expand. Ideally I could insert an expand as part of one of the list items.
If I had list items 1-5, and I want to add an expand to #2, the expand is added at the end of the list instead of in the position chosen under list item 2.
This is particularly frustrating because it was possible in the locally hosted version of Confluence and we used this formatting feature a great deal. Oddly, previously created pages still have the inline expand sections in bulleted lists, you just can't replicate it with new pages.
I found a workaround that will allow you to add an expansion section to a bullet list. You would need to create your expansion section in another area of the page. You also have to create a new bullet list on each line you want to add an expansion section to. You can tab over so that your expansion section appears in the correct position within the bullet list. Obviously, this won't work with a numbered list, as each line will be renumbered to "1" when creating a new numbered list on each line. When you're ready to add the expansion section to your bullet list, click the edit menu in the top left corner of the expansion box to select the entire box and then cut and paste the box onto the line where you want it to appear in your bullet list. Dragging and dropping does not work here.
A word of caution: It does not obey willingly. Preview frequently and don't update until you're sure the changes you made look the way you want. The undo key will be your greatest friend here. I haven't tested edits yet after creating my bullet list with expansion sections, but I know that I couldn't edit an expansion section that was already pasted into the bullet list without first taking it out and then pasting it back in. It's possible you may need to make a copy of the expansion section and paste it into another area of the page and then edit it there before replacing the original expansion section with the new, updated one. Sorry, I haven't used this workaround enough to predict how edits post update will go.
