Hi Graham, I think what you are looking for is a pure tree widget. The drop-tree is more related to a menu-system than to a tree.

That's intended because I use the drop-tree to route the user through a process. And, opening each node over and over again is waste of time. I'm measuring my apps with "click-to-result".

No, that's intended as well. And why you have the quick-buttons 2,3,4 and 5. The thing is that the node has an aciton of it's own. And you can click on the text to fire the action without opening the node.
