Matthew FadoulSubject: Fine-tuned Expand and Collapse while Editing

While editing an XSD schema, I've been working in the diagram/text mode. I use the +/- icons to expand and collapse nodes, but I'd like to have a little more control of this functionality.

For example, let's say that we have a top node with 500 children. What I'd like to do is select the node and "expand one level." At the moment, I find myself having to manually go through the entire XSD and collapsing each child so that I can achieve an appropriately detailed view of my schema.

Does this "expand/collapse one level" exist in Stylus Studio? If so, I'm begging for the hot key(s). If not, I'll ask for the feature enhancement.

Thanks!

Matt

PS: When I switch between the "diagram" and "tree" views, I lose all my collapses, leaving the entire document is expanded...kind of frustrating. I can understand this happening when a document is closed and opened (e.g. starting a new Stylus Studio session), but I didn't expect this behavior from the editor. Any ideas?

Hi Matthew,
the functionality you are looking for is not available in Stylus; we will add to the list of features to be considered for a future release.

Thanks,
Alberto

I second this request and would like to have the feature available when looking a xml documents as well.

To be more specific, it would be nice to have the features listed below available on popup window as the result of a right mouse click.

Expand all
Expand children
Expand sibling nodes below
Expand sibling nodes above

Collapse all
Collapse children
Collapse sibling nodes below
Collapse sibling nodes above

Hi Marie,
yes, the feature is available; just right click on the +/- symbol and you will get a context menu from which you can pick one of these choices:

- If the block is expanded, and you right click on the - symbol:
- Collapse block: it's the default choice, it will collapse the current block as if you left clicked on the - symbol
- Collapse child blocks: it will leave the current block expanded, collapsing all its child blocks; you will get a single level of expanded blocks
- Collapse sibling blocks: it will collapse the current block and also all the blocks at the same level

- If the block is collapsed, and you right click on the + symbol:
- Expand block: it's the default choice, it will expand the current block as if you left clicked on the + symbol
- Expand sibling blocks: it will expand the current block and also all its sibling blocks

Hope this helps,
Alberto
