Description AndyWuest 2016-02-17 10:06:29 UTC

is it possible to provide a more intelligent tree view (in the Files view) that will open the selected nodes until it encounters a node that has two children. This would save me a lot of clicking in the tree view, because of my deep directory structures.

For example: i have the following directory structure. 

+ src
  + main
     + java
        + de
           + somepackage
           + somepackage2

Initiall in the directory structure only the src node is visible. when i click
on the src node, the main node gets visible, and so on. 
It would be nice if the click on the src, would open the tree until the algorithm enocunters a node with two children. because then the ide does not
know which node to open. but it would be save to open main, java, and de, because those node do not have siblings. 
btw. intellij has this feature in the tree views.
