  • Home screen expand/collapse all saved sessions


    I'm evaluating Beyond Compare v3.3.3 (build 14128). I've spotted something that I *think* is a bug, and I can't find previous reference to it in the forums:

    I'm on the main home screen. If I right-click on a closed folder in the saved sessions tree and choose "Expand All", the branch doesn't expand. "Collapse All" on an open folder/branch also appears to have no effect.

    It's a fantastic piece of software, by the way. I'm actually excited every time I get to use it!

    Thanks for the report, but I'm not seeing the behavior you describe. Would it be possible to get a series of screenshots or a video?

      Thanks. I've uploaded a Jing video to Screencast here:

      You should be able to see that I twice try to "Expand All" from the popup menu on a closed node. Then I open the node by clicking on the "+" and twice try to "Collapse All". Expand All and Collapse All do nothing.

      I'm getting the same behaviour on two computers, both running XP Pro SP3.

        Hi Narny,

        It's not a bug, it's just unclear. The "Expand All" and "Collapse All" commands actually affect the entire treeview, not just the selected node, but they exclude the "Edit session defaults" and "Auto-saved sessions" nodes.
