Model Wizard: on opening, folders should be collapsed
« on: July 25, 2019, 10:08:41 am »
When you use the model wizard to (for example create a new package structure.  It opens with all the folders uncollapsed.  If you don't know the name of the wizard you are looking for, you have to trawl through the complete list (which if the default of ALL technologies enabled is retained) can be VERY long.

The wizard should be opened with the folders collapsed so the user can more easily select the folder they might be interested in.

There should (consequently) be a mechanism to collapse and uncollapse the folders.

Actually, a search would be good

As I discovered (before I posted), search IS there, but you have to know the name you are looking for first - Catch-22!

That's why you need to browse first...
