>> Does the following palette do what you want to do?

No. Pushing "1" shows two levels of organization and pushing "2" shows 3. The buttons act like toggles--what you see depends on what you're already seeing in some way. "3" affects only the fifth Title group and "2" affects only the first Title group. It's very confusing.

It's the beginning of a start in the right general direction, though.

Thanks,
Bobby
