Code folding persistence

The IDE has had some nice enhancements and tweaks this year. Could we go one further for the next release and get code folding persistence?

I rarely want to fold code and NOT have it persist. Generally, I’m folding code because, for example, the first line of the If or switch case statement explains its contents without seeing the body of the statement. It’s frustrating to fold code and then click some other method for a second, and return to find all the code is unfolded again. I’d much rather folding code dirtied the project and allowed me to save the change.

Just throwing some light on this old case.


while we are dreaming, how about

  • adjustable tab size?
  • dirty / saved line indicators
  • better bookmarks ( goto next, goto prev)
  • visible linenumbers in the gutter (with jump to line # commands)
