CTRL+Clicking the bookmark?is a great tip indeed.
The plugin referred by Penelope works great too.

FrameMaker's control of bookmark collapse/expand state is not always
Other than using add-ons, you can quickly set the bookmark collapse/expand
state in Acrobat by Ctrl-clicking the [-] icon to the left of a bookmark
will collapse *all* subordinate bookmarks (and likewise, Ctrl-cliking the
[+] icon will expand all subordinate bookmarks). Use Save or Save As to
store the bookmark collapse/expand state in the PDF.
