If a method exists to do this - would love to know.

After I have looked at my library and opened up several categories there can be quite a bit of clicking/scrolling to do to close all those thumbed through categories. It would be nice to have a couple options. First, in the program setting a selection option for: "When library view is closed collapse all filter categories". Also, maybe right in the header labeled "Filter" an icon for "collapse" would be nice. So, just clicking that collapses all filter categories.

The "All" button does this

This doesn't collapse all (actually any) of the sub-categories for me. Nothing changes when I click "all"

Just checking we are talking about the same thing

If I have a filtered view as below

and click "All" - all of the filters are removed and my entire library is shown

Are you seeing something else or are you describing a different issue?

Same view. And, with the "Language" filter expanded, if I click "All" to close it and any other (invisible below on your screen shot) nothing closes.

Apologies - you were talking about an easy way to collapse / close all the facets in the faceted browser whereas I was looking at clearing any filters that had been applied.

There isn't currently any mechanism to do what you are asking for - but I agree it would be helpful.

To be consistent with other parts of Logos software, this should probably be done by providing some collapse / expand options when right-clicking on one of the arrows to the left of a facet (similar to how it is done in Guides)

If the expansion state was remembered (both in Notes and Library) that would go a long way towards alleviating frustrations!

+ Favorites too (7.17 Beta 3 had regression to always open Favorites with all folders expanded while lacking right click collapse/expand options)

Thank you for clarifying. I've been searching for hours how to collapse all in the Library filters. I do agree there needs to be some consistency among the filter options in the different features.
