Is there a macro that searches content in a page and highlights them (just like CTRL + F)?

Hi all,

I would like to have a search macro that highlights the content I am looking for in a page.

I know CTRL + F does the job, but for the users of this specific page it might not be so obvious. I have tried all the search macros (Livesearch, Page Tree, Search) but they just show the page as a result.

@Lorena O. This is cool use case, unfortunately there is no such feature in confluence by default.

I think custom development is only way to go forward with this.

Does Confluence intend on building this macro for our pages for easy keyword searches?
Would Confluence create a macro that would allow Users to create keyboard shortcuts from button?

Hi @Lorena O. 

our "iFinder Search Macro" could meet your requirements. It is part of our product "iFinder Confluence Search". In this article you can find more information about the iFinder Search Macro. Let me know if you need further information.
