  • Suggestion: New default action for Home right click "Expand All"

    When I invoke "Expand All" in Home Folder Tree, I am generally interested in seeing the contents of all the folders which I created in the Tree. Expanding the "Edit session defaults" is just an annoyance, as is expanding the "Auto-saved sessions". To me, these two branches are "orthogonal" to what I care about in a folder expansion and they should be left alone (typically collapsed) by this command.

    or else ...

    Maybe add a new right click command such as "Expand My Sessions".

      I agree that it is not helpful for "Expand All" to open the "New" and "Auto-saved sessions" trees. I would recommend replacing the current functionality rather than adding a new item to the context menu.

        Thanks for the suggestions, Michael and Mark. I've added this idea to our wishlist.

          Another possibility: Leave "Edit session defaults" right where it is in the Saved sessions tree, but add a button or checkbox to control its visiblity:

          [] Edit Session Defaults

          When unchecked or unpushed, this branch would simply not show up on the Saved sessions tree. Maybe something similar for "Auto-saved sessions".

          IMO it's nice to have these on the Home Saved sessions tree when needed, but most of the time for most users they can remain invisible.

            In today's release, Expand All will only expand the user's named sessions.
