I need to riduce my text. Easy problem



  • Hi everyone, sorry for my english.

    I need to set up my notes in a simple way. I have some lists that I would like to reduce with + and -. Let me explain with some examples.

    i currently use xml:

    • <Boy>
      | mick
      | patrick
      | Steave
      </boy>

    • <Woman>
      | Erika
      | Giudith
      </woman>

    Is there a method without opening and closing <> </> to collapse the lists?
    I don’t use notepad to program, but to sort my notes, so I can also change the language to simplify what I said.



  • @Alberto-Massaro ,

    Sorry, I guess I don’t quite understand what you want – or rather, I’m not sure why choosing “xml” isn’t sufficient. Clicking on the +/- next to a collapsible section is the way to collapse a single level (or you can use the View > Collapse/Uncollapse Level submenus to affect all levels at the same time.

    Are you saying that you don’t actually have XML-like <> around the Boy and Woman, and you still want the ability to collapse? That’s doable with a UDL, but it would take knowing what your file format really looked like to know for sure.

    For example, if your file format looked like

    * Boy
        | mick
        | patrick
        | steave
    end
    
    * Woman
        | Erika
        | Giudith
    end
    

    Then you could set up a UDL (user defined language), where yould define * as the start of folding and end as the end of the folding block. (Unfortunately, I don’t know a way to set a blank line as the end of a UDL folding block, sorry.)

    If your data looks different than that, then you’ll have to give an example – after tying the example data, select it all and hit the </> toolbar button in the forum, so it goes in black box, like my example data above does

    With example data, we might be able to come up with a UDL folding definition that would work for you. But there are limits as to what will and won’t work.
