This is just one of many weird problems with the project panel. After a search, all my nicely stacked bins, previously closed and minding their own business, toggle open and I have to close them all. In my current project that's about 50 bins. I also never complained before about there being no hover when moving files around in there or importing by dragging but may as well mention that too.

That is definitely not normal and I apologize for this annoying issue.

I haven't seen this issue before and no one reported this, so far.
Please share the repro steps and I will try to reproduce this at my end.
I'm using 2017.12 v11 Oasis, it's up to date. The suggestion to hold the "alt" key while closing is the answer although it still does this. After clearing the search field, all the bins open.
I was hoping clearing preferences would fix another annoying problem (it didn't change the search thing) which is that I can no longer drag effects onto audio clips on the timeline. Most annoying at the moment is the "constant gain" that I frequently use to use to fade audio quickly. It was working 3 days ago, not working now. It's a hand with a crossed-out circle, tracks are active, etc.. I've pretty much tried toggling and altering everything relevant. Any suggestions?
Thanks for this tip! I use it for the opposite reason when I open a project and all the bins are closed. It's great to be able to toggle between the two.
When you type into the Search field, any bins with matching assets will automatically open. This is by design.
When you clear the Search field, the bins will automatically close.
Are you clearing the Search field?
