Hi, after filtering an org document, I'd like to be able to go back to
the previous visibility. The closest I can get at the moment is to make
everything visible with S-TAB, but I'd like whatever was
expanded/collapsed before the filter to be as it was. How is this done?

Thanks,

Which filtering are you talking about?

agenda?
narrow-to-block?
narrow-to-subtree?

Thanks and Regards

Hi Noorul, I'm talking about  constructing a sparse tree, e.g. by a
property or tag. Sorry if I used the wrong term. Something like

C-c / p MYPROP <RET> MYVAL <RET>

Then, after looking at the filtered document, go back to previous visibility.

Thanks,

Jim

You cannot.  Storing and retrieving the folded state of a document is a
longstanding wish... and issue.  I believe there are a few hacks though
on Worg and elsewhere.

What you can do is C-c C-c on setup lines to remove overlays from 
the buffer.

Sorry that I cannot help further,
