I have a lot of footnotes and it is distracting while trying to read the document in the editor. Is there a way to hide the footnotes or have them appear at the bottom of the page in the editor? thanks

This is not really an answer but doesn't fit in comments. One thing that can help is to format the footnotes in your source code in a way that sets them apart from the main text somewhat. I try to put all footnotes at the end of a sentence (I use a notes-and-bibliography style). I put these notes on a separate line in the source code, surrounded by comment marks and sometimes indented. For example:

Two authors have written about this topic.%
   %
   \footnote{I can cite both authors with one note here: \autocites{First}{Second}.}
   %
Here the main text continues.

If you do this, make sure you don't forget the comment mark at the end of the first sentence; otherwise you get a space before the footnote number.
