    I love the way Roam Research has approached and solve this by making the leftmost vertical lines clickable (yes, the lines indicate the rank granularity of each node). If you just click on those bars, in Roam, it will collapse all the nodes inside that rank granularity. This could be a super nice feature for WorkFlowy to implement, too. It makes a huge difference to be completely clean you scheme by collapsing every child, or the other way around, to be able to expand everything to have a detailed view of all the information inside a bullet.

    Also, dedicated shortcuts for collapse/un-collapse all, and nodes in a certain rank level and below, would be much appreciated. :)

    Hi guys,

    There are 2 keyboard shortcuts to collapse all in a specific node:

    1. Double click the bullet's arrow (also possible on mobile w/ double tap)

    2. Ctrl+DoubleSpace

    If you zoom in on a list, you can just use Ctrl+Space in the list title to expand/ collapse all

    If you use Ctrl+Down/ Up successively in a zoomed-in list title, you can expand/ collapse all lists incrementally by level.

    Hi Frank,

    Wow! Suggestion 1 (double-clicking the bullets' arrow) is genius!  :O

    Suggestions 2 & 3 didn't work here on Mac, though. So I tried with other hotkeys to see if it was a Mac/PC key name issue but either:

    • Ctrl+Space will just make a space
    • Option+Space won't do anything
    • Command+Space would open the OS Spotlight
    • Fn+Space won't do anything

    Am I missing something here? :/

    And the last tip you gave, is amazing, too. How didn't I know about these before? :/

    Thank you for the shortcut enlightening!

    Hi Max,

    Hmmm... that's interesting that Cmd+Space in a zoomed-in list title doesn't work for you... or that Cmd+DoubleSpace in a child list won't work. Maybe you could consider abandoning Mac and coming over to Windows??

    Thanks Frank.

    But for this:

    > If you use Ctrl+Down/ Up successively in a zoomed-in list title, you can expand/ collapse all lists incrementally by level.

    Why not make that (and Cmd+Down/Up for macs) work for all bullets, not just the title?

    Good question, Charles. 

    Most people commonly just want to expand/ collapse lists and so we offer that as an additional shortcut for non-zoomed-in lists.
