Navigator 7.2rc1 is available

The fold control bar uses this stack as its behavior: stack

That script is:

on mouseUp
   put getID(barClickLine()) into CL
   if the number of lines of CL > 1 or word 1 of CL is not "group" then
exit mouseUp
   setFolded CL
   doUpdateDisplay true
end mouseUp

So it's pretty much down to three things:

1.a. Does barClickLine() return the proper line?
1.b. Does getID() return the right ID? And is it the long ID?
2. Does setFolded work?
3. Does doUpdateDisplay do something to reset the folds before displaying?
(This is what was wrong the last time).

One thing to try would be this:

dispatch "setFolded" to stack "revNavigator" with (the long id of <some
group navigator is displaying>),true

Navigator won't immediately update its display, but clicking in Navigator's
list or selecting Update List Now on the Action menu should do it, and then
that group should be displayed folded. I just did this and it worked for
me. If this works for you then we've narrowed the problem down to 1. If it
doesn't work, then 2 or 3.
