Would it be possible to introduce the "Solo" functionality to the sub-folders in the Folders  panel. Sometimes, when I'm moving between years (how I have the route folders), there's a lot of scrolling to be done. Not a major issue, but would be handy to have.

Do you know about Alt/Option clicking a parent folder - it expands/collapses all subfolders.

Also in 7.2 there is now a filter box. So you can filter the entire panel to one year, for example.

Great, somehow I never picked up on that through all the years of use. I use a year/month/day hierarchy and was just thinking the other day that it would be nice if collapsing a year would collapse all months and days under it so the days aren't expanded next time I expand the year.

John, can you explain what you mean? Alt-clicking a parent folder doesn't collapse anything for me.

On PC it's Alt, on Mac it's the Option / alt key.

Imagine you have a folder structure like this and 2017 is open with many subfolders visible:
2017
-201701
--20170101
--20170102
etc

Hold Alt and click 2017 and all the subfolders should contract - you should only see 2017. So that's what I mean about collapsing the parent (2017) folder. Alt click 2017 again and it should open every single subfolder at multiple levels.

Hopefully that's clearer. It works with all lists like folders, keywords, collections.

That's what I was doing and it didn't do anything. After restarting LR, it works as described. Thanks.
