Once again, another great feature request from one our users is being integrated into the next release of Test Design Studio!

Test Design Studio features extensive support for outlining the various code elements of your file so that you can collapse areas that you do not want to focus on at the time.  The ‘Toggle Outlining Expansion’ command is what you use to expand/collapse the node closest to the caret position.  But what about when you want to toggle a lot of nodes at once?

Previously, the only other option was ‘Toggle All Outlining’ that worked on the whole document.  We have now expanded the functionality of the ‘Toggle Outlining Expansion’ command to support a selected range.

If you have not selected any text in the editor, the command functions just like it always did before.  If you have selected a text range, all the nodes that are fully encompassed in the text range will either be expanded or collapsed.  Since you are dealing with multiple outlined regions that could be in different expand/collapse states, the first encountered node in the region will determine if the other nodes are expanded or collapsed.  So if the first node in the range is currently expanded, all nodes will be toggled to the collapsed state.

This subtle enhancement should make it that much easier to use outlining in Test Design Studio and further improve your productivity.
