Expand / collapse all the groups and event blocks on current sheet with a shortcut

People which make medium to large projects probably have this issue. A lot of event blocks and a lot of groups causing a big mess in the sheets. These also all appear expanded after renaming the saved file and loading it again no matter if they were collapsed beforehand.

It would be very useful to have a shortcut that would expand / collapse all the groups and event blocks for much better organization.

Instead of pressing each arrow to close them subsequently (so that when the block/group opens it again there won't be this huge wall of code directly), the user would use a shortcut that would close from the deepest branch towards the top most one.

This would make big projects way more manageable easily.

    "Expand all" and "collapse all" options are available in the latest releases.

    As The Real Danny suggest, something for the editor would be great too.

    Due to problems like these where sometimes just organizing work takes more than working.

    Danny suggested something for the folders in the project bar. I wrote "editor" by mistake being in a rush

    Noticed the expand all / collapse all for a while now, it's great!

    is there any shortcut to access it?

    The event blocks do not collapse. Not too useful right now if you collapse the groups but upon opening one all the code is expanded. Could this be done for events too? Like once collapse all is pressed on the group, it collapses the code too.
