In particular, I'm looking for a simple way to collapse all the N and T panels. I'm using a number of addons and things are starting to get a little cumbersome wheeling up and down to find something so I'd like to collapse them all at once and then expand just the one I want.

If not, is there an API that could make use of?

Ctrl+LMB on a panel header will close all other panels.


Since this question is tagged with :

Currently the Python API can't handle opening and closing panels (it's possible but not exposed, in general Python scripts should not care about which panels are open).

  • $\begingroup$ I get that it's not scene data, but it would be nice to be able to E.G. collapse hundreds of modifiers at once on hundreds of different objects so I can get an overview of which ones are enabled. Maybe the API could be write-only to prevent script behaviour from depending on panel state? (And I freely admit that is probably also a terrible idea for different reasons.) $\endgroup$
