Collapsable Structure View?

Hi,

It would be great if the structure view could be collapsable. The view is extended by default and it can be tedious to scroll it especially for long Python or Javascript files. Or maybe is that already possible and I missed it somehow?

Thanks!

Just to be clearer, I don't mean the collapse of the view itself, but that of its content. This is possible in Eclipse's outline view, see attached screenshot.

In fact I think that this is the only place where PyDev seems to be more productive than PyCharm. I was surprised to find out that in PyDev you have to browse two trees: the project tree and the scruture tree, by contrast in PyDev you have only one when you can expand a file as a folder to see the classes, methods inside.

Maybe I don't know how to use PyCharm but Structure view seems to show you only the tree from the currently opened file.

Does anyone has an idea on how to easily find a function from inside a module (assuming you do not know the name of the function) in PyCharm?

Hello Sorin,

In PyCharm 2.0 EAP, you can enable the "Show members" option in the Project

view, to see the contents of files just like in PyDev.

more productive than PyCharm. I was surprised to find out that in

PyDev you have to browse two trees: the project tree and the scruture

tree, by contrast in PyDev you have only one when you can expand a

file as a folder to see the classes, methods inside.
