Expression Builder window should include Outline view.

The Interactions window has an Outline view on the right-hand side. This can be useful for selecting items, particularly if they are within groups or in Dynamic Panels.


Unfortunately, the Expression Builder does not have an Outline view, sometimes making it more difficult to select items.

That's a good one!

Especially if the outline makes it easier to get things in the right place. Even just trying to build simple validation of a login in the Tutorial with Expression Builder, I got the equals sign out of place, which modified the evaluation of the expressions, and caused an error. It would be great to be able to drag parentheses, ampersands, equals signs, etc. onto a collapsed/collapsible outline.

I second this. I have some screens with a lot of layers and every time I need to go into the expression builder I have to reorder my content so I can select the necessary screen elements. I can easily see a time when I would need to access 2 overlapping items and not be able to build the expression I want because of that.

It will. In fact that will be included in the update we plan to launch next week.
