@Erica, maybe something along those lines?
Regarding the option to "update collapsed states", does that mean we would 'push' updates to the shared view? If so, what would happen in the mean time with the items we will add:
- Do they still appear (either collapsed or expanded)?
- Do they not appear until we push the update?
In which case we could add a third option in the above image: "Expanded" or "Collapsed" or "When I push updates" (and have somewhere a button or menu option to push these)
Also, what would happen to what is already shared: would it update too with its possibly new current collapsed state? lol
Dynalist is still a beautifully minimal-looking software and this might add too much complexity for the benefice (meaning that in the (rare?) case that you make changes to your (yet tailored-shared) document that are too important to be automatically all collapsed or expanded, you could still reshare the whole document).
I believe the ability to "share the document as it looks at the moment of sharing" covers most use cases: the ones who want it all collapsed (yay), the ones who want it all expanded, and those in-between. This would already be quite an improvement on the current functionnality!
