    Hi Ryan,

    Great suggestion... and for now, what might help in the meantime would be to double click in the expand collapse arrow to the left of any bullets you want to expand/ collapse fully. This might actually be as fast, if not faster than what you're proposing... because instead of selecting certain lists via Alt+Click, Click... you just expand the lists you want fully... and then there's no messing with the menu option you're suggesting...

    Thanks, Frank. Yes, that is sometimes useful, but the scenario I was imagining was if all ten starting nodes were siblings and I wanted to expand a selection of them all at once. If the five I want to expand were next to each other (in series), I wouldn't need to Alt+Click each of them; I would be able to drag a selection over them, which is a lot quicker.

    Got it! Thanks for clarifying. The team will see this request but this does not mean it will go on our todo list. It might...

    Would just like to note that, for my workflow, it is important for nodes to open one at a time with CTR+DWN so that I can more easily navigate within the current echelon rather than dealing with the entire mass of data every time. 🙂

    "Expand" and "Collapse" on the selection menu would be swell though!

    +1 for expanding and collapsing a selection. For example, it would be great to be able to highlight 5 out of 10 children and then click ctrl↓ to expand those 5 selected children (and not their grandchildren) while leaving the other 5 unselected children collapsed.

    Thanks!
