Feature Request: Add a toogle button to open all/hide all notes in a collection

It would help to have a toogle button that opens or hides all notes in a collection rather than having to do it one at a time.

Also when finished looking through the notes it would be much faster to return to the normal list if one could then toogle back to hide all.

I suggest that such a button be place on the ribbon above the titles near the search icon.
  • The + and - keys on your keyboard expand/unexpand all items in the current view. Is that what you're looking for?
  • Thank you! I was unaware of that feature and I have used Zotero for 12 years.
  • Is there a way to do this automatically, i.e. set preferences so that items are automatically shown in single lines instead of listing all the notes, etc.?
  • That's the default -- notes only get expanded when
    1) They're found as part of a search
    2) You manually expand them
    3) You manually expand all using the + button.
  • Thanks for the reply! It helped me to identify 'my problem': I had "all fields and tags" in the search settings, so all notes were also searched and opened...
    With the "title, author, year" search setting, only the references themselves are displayed!
