Feature Request: Collapsible Prompts and Answers for Enhanced Chat Readability

Dear OpenAI Team,

I am a frequent user of ChatGPT and I greatly appreciate the advancements and the utility it provides in generating human-like text based on the prompts given. However, I often find myself engaging in a back-and-forth with ChatGPT, asking clarifying questions to ensure I fully understand the generated responses. Over time, this can make the chat history quite lengthy and somewhat difficult to navigate.

I am proposing a feature that allows users to collapse individual prompts and responses or entire threads of clarifying questions and answers. This feature could help in focusing on the main points of the discussion, making it easier to review and digest the information provided by ChatGPT. It would also contribute to a cleaner, more organized, and user-friendly interface, enhancing the overall user experience.

Here’s how I envision it:

  1. Collapsible Threads: Implement a button or icon next to each primary prompt. When clicked, this button would collapse or expand all the subsequent clarifying questions and answers related to that primary prompt.
  2. Individual Collapse/Expand: Allow users to collapse or expand individual prompts and responses by clicking on them, providing more granular control over what parts of the chat are visible.

I believe these enhancements would significantly improve the readability and manageability of chats, especially during longer interactions. They would also provide users with more control over the chat interface, making it easier to focus on key information.

Thank you for considering my request. I am looking forward to any potential updates regarding this feature and am happy to provide further feedback or clarification if needed.

Warm regards,
-Leif
