Unfold nested folds in editor

I am looking for a way to do a 'deep unfold' of nested folds in the Matlab editor - ie when all folds are closed I would like to be able to unfold a particular function, and have all nested loops and conditionals unfolded also to avoid having to manually click many times to see the whole function.
Most implementations of folding I have seen implement this, often with a modifier key (ie hold ctrl or alt while clicking the fold to do a nested unfold), but I couldn't find anything that works in Matlab (R2012a, Linux). This is different to the Fold/Expand all options which apply to all folds in a file.

That sounds like a valid enhancement request. I would recommend contacting support.
As a workaround: It seems like it remembers how functions were folded when the parent is folded. Thus you could unfold all of the sub ones (either manually or with Expand All), and then fold only the highest level ones so that you then see the behavior you desire.

Another tool that might help you would be "go to function". If while the editor is selected, you hit ctrl+G it will pull up a tool that will allow you to quickly go to your function of interest. You could then expand all but already be where you want to be. Then collapse all again.
