My tree panel in WinEdt is like this:

enter image description here

I am wondering whether there is a way to expand all the packages and section branches, to avoid having to open all of the sections when looking for a specific figure?

EDIT: @Harish Kumar - thanks for your reply, but it makes the tree look like this: enter image description here

Is there anyway to make it this way with the figures not showing the includegraphics: enter image description here

If you want to have that branch always expanded, follow the instructions in Harish Kumar's answer.

If you don't need this, you can always right-click on the branch and you'll see this popup menu:

If you click on "Expand branch" the branch will be full expanded, while if you click on "Expand All" all the branches will be full expanded.

Corresponding "Collapse" commands do the opposite.


You have to open tree.ini. There you will find


line under BRANCH="Packages-TeX" and BRANCH="TOC-TeX" (two instances). Change both in to


Press Ctrl + Shift + F9 . Now if you build tree you should get things expanded.

Hope it is useful.

  • I'm seeing that you've added the branch "Packages" in your configuration. ;-) Mar 26, 2014 at 17:52
  • @karlkoeller hihi, I just wanted to play with it as soon as I saw your other answer. I am very curious on every thing you know :). BTW did you see the other query of OP (as another answer)? Do you have to say anything about it? please.
