Summary: Mapkey to force layer/model tree navigator open
Original Question: Does anyone have a mapkey (for WF2) to force the layer/model tree navigator open? Everything I try, acts as a toggle.
Summary: Doesn't look like anyone has solved this directly (or it's not even possible), but the work around mentioned below is clever and will solve my problem.
I've probably put a good two days' work into this, and my final answer is that such a thing does not exist. You'll have to wait until WF3.0 when we get our separate layer UI back. The solution I found to manipulating layers (if that's what you're doing) is that I repeat the mapkey sequence twice because of the toggle. It's stupid and crappy but works.
