Feature request: toggle expand/collapse
Joan Aranda last edited by
Any update on this? Using Alt+n and Ctrl+Alt+F both to fold and unfold looks much more natural to me that having to press also the shift key when I want to unfold. These combinations could work perfectly as toggles, reducing the number of keys to press simultaneously to unfold, and not having to even move your fingers when you quickly expand and collapse again a certain fold level.

October 2020and we still havent got the TOGGLE function that was brilliantly asked for by Joan Aranda in 2017.
I want to use
Alt+Cto Collapde/Uncollapse as a toggle function.
Would be so nice and easy!
Please implement this feature it will be small but huge benefit, we NotePad++ users will luv it.

So why no open bug for such posibility (if it doesn’t already exist)?
Come on, this feature is a no-brainer: makes toggling easier and saves on one unnecessary shortcut command… Please, please, please. Pretty please…

This is an easy one-line PythonScript solution:

As Arkadiusz implied two years ago, for a new request to have a chance of being implemented, someone has to create an issue in the location where Arkadiusz linked. No one had done that in between 2017 when this topic was started and 2020 when Arkadiusz replied, and no one has done that between 2020 when Arkadiusz provided the link and today. Oddly enough, if no one cares enough to actually follow well-documented instructions on how to make a feature request, then the development team isn’t going to have it in their tracker, so they will never implement it.
And no number of "please"s in this forum can change the fact that this forum is not the issue tracker, and that as a Community of fellow Notepad++ users, this forum cannot make changes to the Notepad++ codebase.
makes toggling easier and saves on one unnecessary shortcut command…
After you have created the macro described and assigned a shortcut, using a shortcut to run a macro command (or using the macro menu to run the macro command) is no different than using a keyboard shortcut or another menu to run a builtin command – they are equally easy.
This post is deleted!
@peterjones, I did, actually, right after posting here, should have come back to point it out, so no need for the telling-off in my case, I hope. While I was editing my post, I came up against a time limit, decided to delete and re-post in edited form but came up against another time limit for posting several times in a row. Bit of a catch-22 there…
I downloaded the PythonScript plugin and was able to set up a shortcut key to use the toggle. Great stuff!

It wasn’t meant as a telling off. You had provided useful information, then inexplicably (from my perspective) deleted it. Since it was 2 hours after you posted, I assumed you weren’t going to re-post. I had thought the information was useful enough that it warranted me posting the link. Sorry if you felt told-off.
Oh, maybe you meant my original message informing you that nothing can happen unless an issue is created? In which case, it wasn’t a telling off, but a frustrated response, because we often get situations like this: someone asks for a feature here, and then a year or two later, new users come by and tell us off for not fixing the bug or implementing the feature – when no one went to the effort to put in a feature request.

“Make fold/unfold current line commads togglable” is implemented here:
However, folding/unfolding toggling option is only available for
Collapse Current Levelcommand Ctrl+Alt+F (and for
Uncollapse Current Levelcommand Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F of course, but once this option is enabled, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F is useless).
Collapse Level N&
Uncollapse Level Ncannot be toggled because the state of several levels cannot be determinated.
Here is a good example:
There are 4 level-2 tag under the root (level 1), 2 are expanded and 2 are collapsed. The result of using the toggle option on
Collapse Level 2Alt+2 will be confusing.
For the sake of consistence, folding toggle option is implemented for only one level.
