Im looking for a way to collapse all 40 something layers Ive got open with a quick and simple keyboard shortcut and I can't find it anywhere. Ive googled and searched this forum without any success, all the shortcuts are outdated for the new AE versions
Select the timeline, Cmd/Ctl-a, hit the triangle twirly on just one layer. Maybe the u key will work, or the u-u trick. It's not a keyboard shortcut, but it's faster than one-by-one.
With no layers selected press the u key once to collapse all or if you get keyframes showing press u again. To reveal all settings on all layers that have been modified press the u key quickly twice.
thanks guys, both work but rick's is exactly what I was looking for, much appreciated
Cannot find Collapse nor Expand in the keyboard-shortcuts. When searching for Tilde or Accent Grave amongst used keys, nothing is found. Reading the linked adobe-help doesn't give any hint either on how to get a shortcut to collapse/close all layers.
The U/UU-thing works, but demands all layers to be selected - which easily can be done with cmd+A, but is there any shortcut to deselect them afterwards? Yes, there was. cmd+shift+A. Phew.
Who knew that such a small but important thing to collapse all layers would be almost impossible if you don't have a US-keyboard.
Im using AF 2020, now you can collapse all layers by unselecting all layers and press 'U' Key
