Expanding and Collapsing Elements

In the Online Browser, you can expand and collapse either individual elements or use the menu commands to expand or collapse all siblings or children of a certain element.

 

To expand or collapse a single element:

Do one of the following:

 

To expand an element, click the "+" icon to the left of the element. Alternatively, select the element, and press the Right Arrow key or the Plus Sign (+) key.
To collapse an element, click the "-" icon to the left of the element. Alternatively, select the element, and press the Left Arrow key or the Minus Sign (-) key.

 

To expand or collapse siblings or children:

Right-click an object in the Online Browser and select one of the following from the context menu:

 

Expand | Siblings: Fully expands all contents of the objects that are on the same level as the selected object. For example, if you right-clicked on a table, all sibling tables and the selected table will be expanded.
Expand | Children: Fully expands the descendent objects of the selected object.
Collapse | Siblings: Collapses all contents of the objects that are on the same level as the selected object. For example, if you right-clicked on a table, all sibling tables and the selected table will be collapsed.
Collapse | Children: Collapses the descendent objects of the selected object.
