Shortcut keys that expand AND collapse individual nodes

Post by karimleo »

F8 = Expands Artist Node
F9 = Expands Album Node
F10 = Expands Genre Node
F11 = Expands Year Node

It would be VERY VERY useful if pushing for example F8 again collapsed the Artist Node instead of having to press F7 to collapse the whole tree then having to go back to Playlists (or any custom node for that matter)

My 2 cents that would make alot of difference to me :)

Hopefully in MM3 - would be such a nice (and relatively simple) addition.

Well maybe with enough responses the devs might add it this time. Come on people! :wink:

I didn't actually know you could do this, but now I do a toggle would certainly be more useful! :)

hopefully they can convert all these current shortcuts into the new hotkeys and add many possible alternatives like this one that can be configured

But for now you can use the standard Windows keys to do it:

[+/-] keys: Expand/Collapse from the current location. (You can use the keys on the num pad).

[Right/Left] keys: [Right] is same as [+] but will move right to next child in the node. [Left] is the reverse of [Right]: it will collapse current child (first stroke) and move up the its parent in the tree (second stroke).

:wink:
Skins for MediaMonkey: Cafe, Carbon, Helium, Spotify, Zekton. [ Wiki Zone ].

Yes I sometimes use this method, works but still not "the bomb" :)
