Setting display options

To help manage the complex hierarchies within your project, you might want to set the display of the Project Explorer a certain way so that you can quickly find a particular project element when you need it. For example, you might want to automatically collapse every grouping so that you can navigate more easily in the Actor-Mixer Hierarchy.

To change the Project Explorer display:

  1. In any tab of the Project Explorer, right-click an object.

    The shortcut menu is displayed.

  2. From the shortcut menu, select Expand Options.

    The Expand Options submenu is displayed.

  3. Select one of the following options:

    • Expand Descendants to expand all objects in the hierarchy.

    • Collapse Descendants to collapse all objects in the hierarchy.

You can also use the following keyboard shortcuts to quickly navigate through the different levels in the Project Explorer.
