It annoys a lot, if my written text has lots of footnotes or cites, so a quick reading and writing in same editor ( not in pdf, as you may point out) is a tough matter. I wonder if there is any possiblity to hide or at least shorten Cites, footnotes, references in writing or reading mode in Sublime or other editor for MAC


I found out that it is possible manually fold selected lines with (mac) cmd + alt + [ . But automated process whould be perfect


LyX may be a simple editor alternative with folding of footnotes etc. for you.

  • Not natively. You'll have to insert it as a branch, right? See Can one “fold” part of the paragraphs in LyX. – Werner Mar 5 '14 at 5:38
  • LyX isn't really a LaTeX editor. @Werner Yes, natively just click on the box where it says e.g. foot 1. Edit: Sorry, that's just footnotes. – Torbjørn T. Mar 5 '14 at 9:27
  • @TorbjørnT.: So there is no cold-folding for footnotes? – Werner Mar 5 '14 at 15:07
  • @Werner Yes footnotes can be folded, but not citations, as far as I could see. – Torbjørn T. Mar 5 '14 at 15:14
  • maybe off-topic, but it doesn't support retina displays and therefore looks awful (pixelated) – Sonne Mar 6 '14 at 10:10
