how to close/collapse all project folders & subfolders

I would like to know how to collapse/close any project folders that are expanded in OEP. Perhaps there is already a keyboard command that does this in OEP. If so, please let me know what it is. If not, I would greatly appreciate it if one were added to OEP.

And, btw, I really need a command that will collapse all subfolders as well as top-level folders.

I have a large number of project folders and subfolders in the 'Projects' tab of OEP, as well as a large number of projects.

This command would be especially useful after I run "Find" operations in the 'Projects' tab of OEP, because almost every time I do run a "Find", the operation leaves open (or expanded) many project folders & sub-folders --- leaving me with an unwieldy list of folders and projects, and the tedious task of closing/collapsing each one manually.

I'm also relying on the "Find" feature more these days, esp to find several projects located in different OEP folders. (For example, I include a short code within an OEP project name if a project includes a content filter. I even have different codes for each type of content filter I typically use. Then each week, I run a "Find" operation for each of those codes -- jumping from project to project, across numerous folders and subfolders, during these "Find" operations.)

Anyway, I would sure appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

Ctrl +(on the numpad keyboard) works as all-expand and Ctrl - (on keypad as well) will collapse all nodes.

Oh. That was easy. Thanks. (I couldn't find those commands in the OEP Help file. Perhaps a new page in the OEP Help file -- a help page listing all the OEP keyboard commands -- would be useful.)

Yes, I will work on it later. I added explanation of these shortcuts to the "Organizing Projects Tree" chapter meanwhile.
