Agree, Right to expand should be complimented by Left to collapse.

But, why is KEY_LEFT being handled different to KEY_SUBTRACT when KEY_ADD is give same result as KEY_RIGHT?

@caolan: maybe you are interested in this one too? thanks!
Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2020-02-24 09:41:13 UTC
what I see is that if focus is on a node that can collapse then left does collapse it, if the focus is on a node that can't collapse it moves focus to the parent node, and left again at that point collapses that parent, so that seems to work as its designed. Not sure if there needs to be any change there

opening and collapsing does work with +/-
not (initially) with Left/Right
now (in master) if a node has been opened/collapsed once by mouse or +/-, arrow Left/Right do work. (for only that node)

It is of course not a major issue, but from many places I remember using the arrow keys.
