"Collapse All" button - for Outline pane

(Feature Request)


To the Outline pane (made collapsible since v0.8.15), please add Collapse All button, for folding all levels of children.

Additional info:

A) Today which part of Obsidian has Collapse all button

  • Search pane
  • Backlinks pane
  • Editor (keyboard shortcut)

B) Where else we need collapse all


How about a button in the ribbon that allows you to select fold levels (just see #, just see ##, see all, etc.)?


Yeah! I excitedly assigned a shortcut to the collapse all command in the editor only to find it basically useless as it collapses the H1 and thus the entire note except for metadata stuff.


Got my vote

hi all, any progress on this? Would love to be able to collapse all blocks in a note. Does not matter to me if it collapses H1, I can expand that one by hand, as long as the rest stays collapsed. Tia, Derek.

sorry, my bad, there IS an option for this, it is called Fold and not Collapse. Even has its standard shortcut ^shift.

It would be very useful for long content.

I would only do it for Headings, otherwise it would be a lot of word to expand indents too, to read them.

Any news about topic?
I’m voting for this function
