[TSVN] Suggestion: Repo Browser - "expand all children"

Hi,

the repository browser essentially is a tree of directories. By default, child in this tree is collapsed - but more often than not, repository browsing requires expanding of child items.

Suggestion:

Implement UI functionality in the repository browser that allows users to recursively expand (and collapse) all children beginning from a to-be-selected parent item.

I see two ways how this could be implemented:

1.) Add context menu entries "Expand all directories" and "Collapse all directories".

Problem: This adds even more context menu entries.

2.) Add keyboard accelerators, e.g. the "+" key recursively expands all child items underneath the currently selected item; the "-" key recursively collapses all child items.

Problem: Users would have to read the documentation to find this feature.

Best regards
Stefan
