I want to show all properties of all subtrees while folding all of them is the default option but I can't find a option to this.

  • Please consider editing your question to include an example to better describe what it is that you seek, and/or edit the wording of the question. You say you "want to show all properties of all subtrees", but then you use the words "while folding all of them" which is the exact opposite showing them. See also the section of the manual "2.3.2 Initial visibility": orgmode.org/manual/Initial-visibility.html – lawlist Dec 20 '16 at 16:17

I suspect the the outline-* set of commands may accomplish what you are looking for. They do not consider property drawers when unfolding an outline. In fact, C-u C-u C-u TAB in org-mode (org-cycle) actually calls outline-show-all. If you don't want property drawers to be collapsed when folding headings you could bind TAB to outline-toggle-children instead of org-cycle.


Old post I know, but if someone is interested check org-mode manual section 7: Properties and columns
