    Lunay here.

    I am a BIG FAN of notepad++ project. Its a great software that makes life
    so much more easy for so many of us. I use it to develop literary textual
    content, blog posts, essays and not code strictly. I would like to
    request/develop this plugin I have in mind. I very much like the concept of
    how Workflowy structures its data. Now in npp while editing the tabbing
    manages to do similar thing, structure content in an indented format, but
    when there is too much of such indentation, the editors lose a track of
    data because it overflows into scrolling domains down below. If there was
    some feature by which we could just collapse down a particular topic and
    all the content that is indented within that heading, it could be really
    really great. Now this works if the language of editing is say C++ and if
    we enclose the content in parantheses {} but the style of it is a bit not
    visually appealing and also it does not work in txt editing.

    So how about this plugin feature which can identify this indentation and
    provide a simple clickable +/- sign to collapse expand stuff? If there is
    some plugin that already does that, please elighten me. Your cooperation
    would be highly highly sincerely appreciated.

    You can use an user defined language to do this. Just define fold openers and fold closers as you like.
