Feature Request: Org-mode Inspired Folding and Unfolding for Filters in Paraview Pipeline

Dear Paraview Community,

I am reaching out to suggest a new feature that could significantly improve the user experience when working with complex setups containing hundreds of filters. Currently, managing and understanding the pipeline’s organization can be challenging, as the pipeline balls only provide an outline view.

To address this issue, I propose the adoption of a folding and unfolding mechanism inspired by Emacs Org-mode. This would allow users to easily collapse and expand filters using similar key-bindings, making complex pipelines more manageable and enhancing workflow efficiency.

Thank you for your attention and consideration of this feature request. I believe that incorporating an Org-mode-like functionality into Paraview could greatly benefit many users and improve overall productivity.

Looking forward to any feedback and discussions on this proposed feature.

Best regards,
