How do you make an expand macro stay collapsed in a template?

I have created a template with 3 expand macros for the 3 sections I want to present. Not all users will need all sections. I want them to expand and complete only the section they need.

I have a Create from Template macro on the home page. When a user clicks on it, the page is created but all the sections are expanded out.

Is it possible to have the page created from a template with the sections collapsed?

Thank you.

When a page is created from a template, the macros on the template will be automatically show as they would if you manually added them on a new page. 

When a page is in edit mode, the expand macro is always expanded or open.  You can only toggle when the page is in view mode.

I hope this makes sense!  

Thank you, it does make sense. I was hoping there was something that would allow me to override it. Thanks again.
