    does EmEditor have this feature shown below, where you can create groups of lines in a treeview and hide/display them?



    I think that’s commonly called “Code Folding” (or “Text folding”)

    And it is called Outline by EmEditor.

    EmEditor Help – How to – Plug-ins – Use Outline Plug-in

    The Outline plug-in is installed by default with EmEditor Professional.

    There are two major functions in this plug-in:

    1.) Outlining in the custom bar

    A tree view appears when you click the on the Plug-ins bar.
    Or on the Tools menu, point to Plug-ins, and then click Outline.
    In the Outline custom bar, the outline appears as a tree.

    2.) …

    [To customize the plugin] right-click on the Outline button on the Plug-ins bar, select Properties, …

    Find me: “Code Folding” “CodeFolding” “Code-Folding” “Code-Faltung” “Text folding” “Textfolding” “Text-folding”

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Code folding is a feature of some text editors, source code editors and IDEs that allows the user to selectively hide
    and display sections of a currently-edited file as a part of routine edit operations. This allows the user to manage
    large amounts of text while viewing only those subsections of the text that are specifically relevant at any given time.



    this comes close to what I want, but I am not sure if it can fulfill my needs:

    in a text file with many lines that some of those have the same starting characters followed by a tab, I want to group those lines together

    if there is only one line with a specific sequence of starting characters followed by a tab, then this is a group itself

    is it possible?

    the identification that EmEditor will seek in order to group the proper lines, is a multidigit number, followed by a tab

    any idea?
