Collapse "Color" panel's sub-categories (like "Header", "Blog" etc), for fast & easy style editing

Recommended Posts

Problem: The Style Editor's "Color" panel options are a mile long, making it hard to find and access specific elements for editing.

Solution: Collapse all the sub-categories by default. Then you'll quickly see the one(s) you want to expand and edit — at the same time.

Doing this allows us to find what we're looking for much more quickly.

Bonus points for adding an "Expand/Collapse All" toggle button at the top of the panel.

Also consider creating collapsible Parent categories for related sub-categories (like BLOG: _____, BLOG: _____, etc.).

In this example, these can all go in one Parent cat called "BLOG". Expanded, that Parent cat displays its collapsed children.

And doing this make's it way easier for us to select and expand (and collapse) we're looking for.

An "Expand/Collapse All" button would help at the Parent level as well. Same rules apply.

Lastly, this concept could be applied to other Style Editor panels, depending on the need. It's all about speed and avoiding choice overload.
