Very, very nice! I didn't know this, and it scratches about 90% of my
itch. After reading your message, I really began experimenting
with hotkeys in the move dialog, and found several things:

* Home, End, Up, Down, PgUp and PgDown do just what you'd expect
* To collapse the whole thing, you may need to press Home before -
* Searches on the first few chars continue to work on anything
  currently expanded.

Now that 90% of my itch was already scratched by the current behavior
of Claws, does anyone know if there's a hotkey to expand the *entire*
tree at once? This would be useful for when one gives up on drilling
down and wants to search the entire outline. If I could find this
functionality, I think both I and the Original Poster (OP) would be
*completely* satisfied with the current Claws behavior. Who needs a
config option to start collapsed when Home,- collapses you, and if you
do it immediately, - alone does it?

Paul, thanks for the great, useful, and time saving information!
