Add ability to Collapse/Expand Attribute category sections in Asset Search Pane
By default, the attributes shown for an asset in the Asset Search Pane, are all shown under their categories with no ability to collapse a given section. The can mean that the user has to scroll down a considerable amount in order to find the attributes they need (see screenshot 1). Screenshot 2 shows an example of how the "Real-Time Data" may be beneath under attribute sections, that while may be important at times, are not collapsible to make it quicker and easier to get to a section the user may access much more frequently. Of course, one can make "Hidden" the attributes that are less-frequently used, but then of course, they are no longer accessible in Vision.

Provide a feature in PI Vision to allow collapsing category to hide attributes within that category on left panel. Some attribute lists are quite long and Category only provides a "heading" for grouping those attributes. Allowing attribute list collapse by Category, and an option to default that functionality, would eliminate the option of using Attribute Parent | Attribute Child option, which is confusing.

This would make things much easier for user and installer. I know currently I can make attributes and have sub attributes and achieve a similar result in coresight, but it adds confusion and complexity to building the elements in excel etc. it would be extremely handy and seems easy enough to make the categories default to collapsed in coresight.
