I think I might be misunderstanding this question. But I read it as "search current page", and the answer is:
Confluence's search is built for finding pages, not content within a page. So even if you did this, the result would not be anything more than a link back to the page you were on.
To search the current page for something, try CTRL-F - most browsers will pop a text search for you.
It's probably too late for the OP, but if you with to include a search option alternative to CTRL+F (or Command+F on the Mac), add a LIVESEARCH macro to your page. In the options, select, "Restrict to label(s)" and choose a unique label that is specific to the current page (don't forget to add that label to the page).
I usually break up Confluence pages into sections (with child pages), but use the LIVESEARCH macro to search the current page plus all it's child pages. I'll add a unique label so that the search results are restricted to only the relevant pages.
@JoAnna Black, the `Livesearch` macro does in fact return pages that match full search terms even if they are contained within unexpended `Expand` macros. This isn't too helpful for finding where a term is in a large page but only confirming that it does exist somewhere in the page.
I'm trying to create a glossary/dictionary and plan to have unique child pages for each term and use Livesearch to search those pages.
