Outliner Shorcuts

Outliner Shortcuts is an editor only plugin that allows the binding of shortcuts to some basic World Outliner functions like Collapse All and Expand All, and a new function Collapse to Root was also added.

Another functionality of the plugin is to automatically Expand/Collapse/Collapse to Root the World Outliner when a Map opens.


Due to issues with the Marketplace/Epic Game Launcher (outside of my control), you might have issues installing the plugin from the Marketplace being displayed as Unavailable. Please report this issue to Epic.
If you want, as the project is open source, you can also install the plugin manually by following these instructions:
