I apologize if this has been requested before. I would like to see the option to collapse the table of contents for all resources.  I'm thinking a context menu option would be adequate and would not take up screen real estate. 

Use Case:

I use the search feature for some set of words. After saving the results as a passage list, I start reviewing the list. To see the context, I click on the verse reference which opens up the Bible window to that passage. This expands the Table of Contents to the appropriate book and chapter. I continue doing this with the resulting expanded Table of Contents.

I remember another passage that is not on the list but may be related. If I want to use the Table of Contents navigation to get to the passage, I have to wade through the expanded Table of Contents. Ugh!

Yes, I can type the presumed reference in the passage field, but that defeats the purpose for the Table of Contents navigation.

If I could open the context menu and select "Collapse all", it would be wonderful

Thank you for considering this request.

Welcome to the forums.

That would be a nice feature.

Are you aware that the TOC will open, remembering the state it was in when it was last closed? In other words, If I have Genesis expanded when I close my preferred bible, it will be expanded when I reopen. If I have everything collapsed, everything will be collapsed when I reopen it.

Yes, I have used that advantageously in the past.  Thanks for making sure that I was aware of it.

This is definitely a needed feature, especially for those who make use of Bible Dictionaries, Lexicons, etc. as demonstrated in this thread:

Unfortunately, you will note that the above thread is about 7 years old. Consider adding your vote @ Logos uservoice site where we can request new features. I believe that this is the request with the most traction:

Hopefully, we will see this feature implemented sooner than later, it is sorely needed.
