When using a database in a notes client I frequently find myself wanting to collapse all categories except the one I am browsing. Unfortunately this is a pain -- the easiest way to do this is to click the 'collapse all' button, then re-expand the category I was previously viewing. If that category is three levels deep it gets quite annoying doing this day after day.
I'd love to have a button that collapses all except the category (or possibly even categories) I have documents selected in. It would be an awfully simple, but very useful new feature.

I chose promote, but instead of yet another smart icon ... err ... toolbar icon, I'd rather like to see this as a selectable column property, like "show twisty if row is expandable".

It could also be included in view customizations, so users could pick this (or the standard) behavior as their preferred choice view by view.

So, we have * to open just the category we're in, and SHIFT-* to open all of it's hierarchy, others have asked for CTRL-* to select all in the current hierarchy
How about ALT-* to collpase all except the current hierarchy?
