# 2014-01-15 Vim folding commands

## Using folds in Vim

Folds are useful when having long files to have a good perspective on its structure. Especially useful in LaTeX mode.

To install, I recommend using the python-mode described in http://unlogic.co.uk/2013/02/08/vim-as-a-python-ide/

The magical shortcut all begin with z. Type :hep fold to learn more about them.

These are the most common shortcuts in my personal order of preference.

• zo opens a fold at the cursor.
• zc closes a fold at the cursor.
• zM closes all open folds.
• zO opens all folds at the cursor.
• [z move to start of open fold.
• ]z move to end of open fold.
• zj moves the cursor to the next fold.
• zk moves the cursor to the previous fold.
• zf#j creates a fold from the cursor down # lines.
• zf/string creates a fold from the cursor to string .
• zm increases the foldlevel by one.
• zr decreases the foldlevel by one.
• zR decreases the foldlevel to zero -- all folds will be open.
• zd deletes the fold at the cursor.
• zE deletes all folds.
