Collapse/Expand Triggers?

Is it possible to collapse an object/layer/slide that has multiple triggers attached? If not, this would be a great feature to have since it would help condense the clutter that is in the trigger window. I have several drag-n-drop exercises that work like dress-up games where there are a lot of objects on the stage. Being able to collapse/expand an object to hide/reveal its triggers would help a lot.

Ashley, I have a question. Most of my slides have Triggers that appear correctly in the Triggers panel. I built a course that was put on hold. Now I open it to begin working on it again and the triggers are weird. Some are ok others not ok. 

When I click on the trigger that seems to have collaped the information is all there and I can make it lay out correctly but when I go back it has collapsed on itself again.

Even when I completed redo the Triggers they callapse. Is this normatl? I have never seen this before,

See attached.

What is up with this? Hope you have seen this before and do you have an answer?

Just to add my 2 pence in on the issues LaVon is having, this is extremely annoying!

It seems to happen when I'm coping and pasting a lot of triggers and quickly moving between layers.

Not sure exactly when it glitches but it does! For a "quick" fix if you adjust the height the slide layers panel below it, it will bring them back into view, but it will keep breaking and you gotta keep doing it. After a certain point this "fix" will be annoying to constantly do so restarting SL will fix it until it inevitably breaks again. Not extremely helpful advice but its how I get through my day! When I've had enough of doing it I just restart SL.
