## partial open and closing

 If I have an entry and I wish to see all subheads down to 2 deep, how do I do that? I think there is something basic about folds I'm not getting.  I tried prefacing zo or zc with numbers, but it didn't seem to do anything.  For example, zc says when a number is given, "that many folds deep" are closed.  This seems to imply that folds deeper than the given number will remain open--i.e., that the most detailed view would remain.  That doesn't make any sense to me. In experiments, the only thing I notice things like the zo/zO distinction doing is that if I have A   B   C and B is collapsed when I collapse A, zo will leave B collapsed while zO opens it up.  While I suppose remembering the collapsed structure might be useful, it doesn't help with what I want.  If A is open all the way, and B and C both have subitems, I would like to select A and get just B and C to collapse if I select 1 level deep. -- Ross Boylan                                      wk:  (415) 514-8146 185 Berry St #5700                               [hidden email] Dept of Epidemiology and Biostatistics           fax: (415) 514-8150 University of California, San Francisco San Francisco, CA 94107-1739                     hm:  (415) 550-1062 _______________________________________________ VimOutliner mailing list [hidden email] http://www.lists.vimoutliner.org/mailman/listinfo/vimoutliner

Ross, I've read and reread you example and I don't understand. Can you give a better example?
