Hello there,

 

I'm assembling an HD Game UI in XD, It's a fantastic tool and I'm glad I jumped from Sketch. However, my Artboards are often pretty complex and I wondered if there was a way (Shortcut) to collapse all Groups?

Having to click on them all gets a bit frustrating...

Thanks for the suggestion Areas, but that's not what we want. Like the others here, I create lots of sub-groups and sub-sub-groups inside the main groups/folders that contain the main parts of my design (e.g., the "paypal #2" folder in my attached screenshot). As I click to edit different drawing elements, those sub-folders all get open and become confusing.

 

I can click the main group folders to close them, but when I reopen those main folders, all the sub-folders are open as they were. What I want is to be able to right-click or something on those main folders to collapse all the sub-folders and sub-sub folders inside—without closing the main folder ("Paypal #, in this case). That would really save time and enable me to see the forest without getting lost in the trees.

Hi, it's been years and this is an essential feature for exporting all assets (and not just groups). Has this been fixed yet?
