Folding in output window was introduced by . Allow the user to expand them all.
* enabled option "collapse folds for successfully executed mojos" (see maven options)
* run maven build -> folds are collapsed when there are no failures
* now the user wants to see the all the tiny details
ACTUAL: expand every fold by tedious clicking; actions in "View|Folds" for expand all do not work (grayed-out) nor their shortcuts
EXPECTED: support all the folding actions (expand/expand all/collapse/collapse all) also in output window (f.e. in context menu, or at least via the actions in "View|Folds")
Fixed in http://hg.netbeans.org/core-main/rev/94f3c8167417
Actions for expanding and collapsing of folds are now in context menu of Output Window.
Thank you for reporting the bug.
Shortcuts for folding actions are reused from editor (Code Folds). Because default shortcuts for simple expand/collapse conflicted with shortcuts in Output Window, I changed shortcut for "Smaller Font" to Ctrl+DOWN and for "Larger Font" to Ctrl+UP.
Peter, please, do you think this is OK?
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201305281155* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #229591: Folds in output window cannot be collapsed/expanded via standard folding actions
Verified in 201307222300. There is even a new context menu entry for expanding/collapsing the folds
