I created a project called "Home Projects". Inside there are 20 or so projects for various small projects around the house. Each project has several steps, all contained in each project. This is a very common setup, I would think.
Whenever I go to the "Home Projects" list, all of the projects are "rolled up" and all display counts of sub-tasks in various states -- with overdue due dates, etc. In order to see what I need to do, as an overview (or to do a GTD Review!), I need to click the triangle to open every one. It drives me nuts. I just want to see all tasks and manipulate them without having to open all of the sub-projects every time.
Ideally an "Expand All" button or hotkey (and a converse "Contract all") would serve the need.
I agree 100% with the original poster.
As an implementation method, I'd like suggest that the "zoom level" slider could cause collapsed projects to expand when slid to max zoom. Or a separate "Expand All"/"Collapse All" control (Gmail has a good implementation) would work.
Please make this a priority. Navigating a tree of tasks is currently the most painful part of using this otherwise excellent app!
I think this would be very helpful
