i know that i can use the minus key, but i would like the items to be collapsed withou me having to collapse them all the time.
the second problem: for the notices as well as for the attachments there is the column "created" and "changed" (i tranlsate from german). when i work on the attachment an save it again, the date of "changed" should change, no? but it does not
Given your earlier question about syncing and attachments, I am unsure of what is the exact problem or question. The experts cannot see your screen or what you are doing or the steps you are taking to accomplish your task. I an not one of the experts but I think that your questions are unanswerable until you provide more details. Please describe exactly what you are trying to achieve.
I can think of more than one way that a list of attachments will "pop-up". Is this related to syncing?
when i make a search for example, zotero will give me the results with the notices "opened" so that the lists of attachments are visible. they can be very long, which is annoying
For your second issue, I'll let Dan answer. I'm not sure if file attachment modification time in Zotero is determined by the file modification time or editing attachment metadata. If the former, I'm guessing that Zotero doesn't continuously check the modification time, so it may not update until you restart Zotero.
about the panes. both item and attachment times are wrong (or not up to date). also in the right hand pane.
