Elements: Organizer: Version set expand/collapse button issues

In the organizer there are two (related?) problems with using the version set expand/collapse buttons:

1) In Grid view, with 2 adjacent versioned photos, collapsing the first set expands the next set.
2) In full-screen view, collapsing a version set with the button doesn't do anything - the photos stay expanded.

In both cases using the equivalent commands in the right-click menu works as expected.

PSE13 did not have this problem.

Yes, that bug is annoying.
Workaround: instead of using the small triangle icon to collapse, use the right click contextual menu and choose Version set >> collapse.

Thanks for confirmation that it's a known bug.

When will PSE2018 be fixed?

I am just another user like you.
Don't expect any feedback from Adobe here. We'll know if and when it is fixed by testing possible updates of PSE2018 or future versions.
The key factor is the impact of this bug.
- is it critical ? No.
- is it common to most users? Certainly not. How many users of Elements do use the organizer and how many use version sets? How many did notice the bug?
- suppose many users come here and use the 'me too' button. That might help to give better priority rank to the issue.
- is it easy to solve? My guess is yes, since the menu tools works as before.
- will there be a PSE 2018 update before the next future version? No one knows. Such possible updates are becoming rare and only if there are very critical issues.

I am new to experimenting with version sets.
I started with a photo, edited it with elements editor (crop) and saved in version set with original.
When I go back to the organiser I can see that there is a small icon top right which appears to indicate a version set. But I can only see the edited photo which is now on top. I cannot see the original photo. I tried edit/version set/expand items
but I can still only see the edited photo. There should be two photos in the version set.
How can I see these please???

First switch from the default 'adaptative grid' view to the old 'detailed' view with the shortcut Ctrl D or the menu. Instead of filling the page with only images, you are shown the details, file name and date of the shot.
From the detailed view
In detailed view, a right click opens the contextual menu which allows your to display the version sets or stacks.
