Select what you want to see in the Document Tree

Postby mlampert » Tue Sep 11, 2018 6:31 pm

As of last night the Document Tree widget has 3 options for what is being displayed:
* Only the currently active document
* All documents as it used to be
* Expand the active document and collapse all others

Due to the challenges and confusion by novice users the default behaviour has changed to only show the currently active document. If you want to change the behaviour, go to the menu "View" -> "Document Tree".

I think this is great! This and the task tab icon to indicate an active task will definitely help.
Nice work!

I used the new default visibility to switch between two models in order to compare the properties of some objects. I realized that the properties are not cleared when switching between documents.
It would be even greater, if the old selection and the display of the properties could be restored. Sorry for grabbing the whole hand when you gave us a finger.

Is there a way to expand the tree of the document through python command?
