    expandable headlines in text editor?

    Hi!

    Does anyone know if it exists a text editor where I can create headlines that can expand, in a similar way as folders expand in a file browser when files are viewed as a list.

    Im looking for a way to keep a tidy overview of topics with easy access to the content. So, for text, not code.

    any suggestions are very welcome.

    cheers!

    org-mode in emacs does this, sort of.

    When you edit a file in org-mode, lines beginning with * A Title, ** A Subtitle, *** And So On are understood to be headlines that you can move to and from, as well as hide (with the contents) and show. org-mode also has plenty of other features that you may or may not find useful.

    However, it's emacs... It's a wonderful editor but it does have a learning curve.
    This is the first age that's paid much attention to the future, which is a little ironic since we may not have one.

    thanks - emacs can off course also make me dinner if i want it to with meta-x make-me-dinner

    It would be a nice feature of openoffice or notepad though.
