Preserve Editor X collapse level in settings

In Editor X, Is there any way to preserve or programmatically set the the ‘collapse’ level of the ‘tree view’ display of ‘running’ test steps?

I have a fairly deep hierarchy of steps which is difficult for the person running the test to view.
I can select ‘Collapse All’ from the popup menu.

I there any way to set the collapsed view as the default, or to preserve the level of collapse I set when editing the test plan?

If not, is there any way to do it programmatically from a test step or an attribute? I have some control of the settings layout using attributes, but don’t see any way to do the same from the ‘tree view’ of steps.
