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.
