collapsing sections in Kile (looking for solution or other program)

I've been using Kile for a while, and overall I'm very satisfied, but I'm having one big problem with it.

If I'm writing a big document, with several chapters and sections, I want to be able to collapse several chapters and sections, so that I have a reasonable view on just the current section I'm working in.

Just using
Code:
\chapter A
\section A.a
text
\section A.b
text
\chapter B
text
doesn't work (Kile shows no collapse butten), so I use the less standard syntax
Code:
\begin{chapter}{A}
\begin{section}{A.a}
text
\end{section}
\begin{section}{A.b}
text
\end{section}
\end{chapter}
\begin{chapter}{B}
text
\end{chapter}
but somehow this seems buggy: sometimes it collapses too much, sometimes scrolling goes crazy (showing some lines twice, for exaple), etc.

So I assume I'm doing something wrong. What's the proper way to make chapters and sections collapsible in Kile, and if it's not possible, what other programs can do this (preferrably also having environment autocompletion and multiline indentation)?
