I have the nodes status for the tree set at “Collapse all Nodes”. Despite that, when I start up CT, the nodes do not appear collapsed but are in the status when I closed CT.
Please advise.15 January 2018 at 08:56 #124736
Hi Klaas Vaak,
are other settings applying to your changes?
About your config file: did it wrote the configuration
“rest_exp_coll = 2”
If not, then maybe somethings wrong with saving settings or just this one in particular….

Het Toxision, thanks for replying.
I have no problem with other settings responding correctly.
As for the config file:
The names I have found are these:
I did not find “rest_exp_coll = 2” in any of them. So please tell me:
* where is it?
* what is the exact name of it?
Many thanks.15 January 2018 at 11:11 #124738
Hi Klaas Vaak,
ok i haven’t exactly specified. It’s the config.cfg file and per default it is in: root:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\cherrytree
Or in Cherrytree go to Help -> Open Preference Directory
Check if the modification time matches when you made the setting change and take a look if you see the mentioned line “rest_exp_coll = 2”

Hi Chris, yes I found the config file, and in it I found the line “rest_exp_coll = 2”.
But there is no date/time, this is what there is in that block in the config file:
rest_exp_coll = 2
nodes_bookm_exp = False
nodes_icons = c
aux_icon_hide = False
default_icon_text = 25
tree_right_side = False
cherry_wrap_width = 200
tree_click_focus_text = False
tree_click_expand = False
In fact, I don’t see a date in that whole config file.16 January 2018 at 08:35 #124740
i was referring to the timestamp of the last modification of the file. Indeed in the file itself is no date specified. Nevertheless “rest_exp_coll = 2” is the correct entry and should trigger the “collapse all” function. In this case now i am lost, sorry :-/

Can anybody suggest anything else?16 January 2018 at 10:53 #124742
Open the second part of the tree settings. There is an option to expand the tree, if a node gets selected (the second last option on that page). Possibly it is activated for you. Disable this option.16 January 2018 at 11:55 #124743
Hi Cosmo. By “expand the tree, if a node gets selected” (Tree 2 in the preferences) I assume you mean the option “Expand node at mouse click”, the checkbox for which I have not checked. In fact, I have never had any of the checkboxes there checked. So that cannot be the cause.22 January 2018 at 14:40 #124758
Giuseppe, do you have any suggestions regarding this issue? The suggestions proffered by Tozision & Cosmo did not yield any positive result.22 January 2018 at 15:14 #124759
If within Windows an AHK script might be created to
apply keys .. Shift + Ctrl + L
(View > Collapse all nodes)22 January 2018 at 15:53 #124760
Hi Eureka, thanks for jumping in. An AKK script means 2 things:
1. it is a workaround, which should not be necessary because CT has this feature
2. the AHK script could only be launched after launching CT, which means carrying out an extra action. The action is small, I know, but it annoys me to know that the collapse feature is there natively but is just not working properly, for a reason no one knows.
Am I seeing this the right way or am I missing something?22 January 2018 at 15:58 #124761
Well I tried setting preferences to collapse nodes on startup and it does not work for me. Nodes startup open instead of collapsed.
Version 0.38.4 in Ubuntu.22 January 2018 at 16:07 #124762
P.S. correcting your impression there should only be one action to launch AHK script in one go since AHK will (a) launch CherryTree and then (b) execute keystrokes. Both actions in AHK script.
I envisage a launcher on desktop or elsewhere for this.22 January 2018 at 17:00 #124763
OK, you are confirming that this feature on the Linux version of CT does not work either. I hope Giuseppe takes note because it needs to be fixed.
