I'm using Lightroom 5, and was wondering if there's a quick way to display all items in a stack in Survey View.

Right now, I can do that by:

  1. Expanding the stack
  2. Selecting all items in the stack
  3. Switching to survey view

I was wondering if there was a quick way to click on the stack and get it to open in Survey View.

Failing that I was wondering if I could automatically select all the items in a stack.

Any ideas?

Usually I select the collapsed stack while pressing the shift key, in this way I have selected all photos in the stack, then I can click on survey view or just press N key

Yep, that did the trick! It turns out double clicking the number-of-items-in-the-stack badge works too :) – Eric Oct 17 '13 at 15:05
