    Hi Karen, 

    Thanks for your question. 

    When using the Expand macro in your Confluence content, Scroll PDF Exporter will export the content which is included within the macro but it will not export the macro container. Unfortunately, it is not possible to define how the content is displayed (e.g. expanded or cloaked) when exporting using this specific macro with Scroll PDF Exporter. 

    How were you wanting the content to be displayed in your export? Did you require the information to be expandable in your PDF or did you simply want to have the content hidden?

    If you are only wanting the specific content included within this macro to be shown in Confluence, but not in the export, it would be possible to use the Scroll Ignore macro. When wrapping your content with this macro it will exclude the contents when exporting your page(s). 

    I hope this information helps. 

    Thanks, Thomas

    We were wondering if it could be expandable in the PDF.

    Hi Karen, 

    Thanks for your reply. 

    Unfortunately not – this is mainly due to the limitations of the page construct for a PDF document, which would have to adjust accordingly to content being collapsed and expanded.

    For example, text beneath an expandable section would need to be pushed further down the page and this would have a knock-on effect on formatting for things like headings, page numbers and the table of contents. The PDF would need to dynamically update to these changes which is not possible.  

    I hope this answer helps. 

    Thanks, Thomas
