XML Code Folding

XML documents are usually quite large, and to simplify working with them, Stylus Studio's XML editor provides XML code folding, a handy way to help you maximize the usage of your screen's limited real estate.

Expand and Collapse XML Document Trees

In the left margin of the Stylus Studio's XML editor, you'll find (+) and (-) boxes. To expand a node, click on the (+) icon, to collapse it, click on the (-) sign. The code which has been folded is represented as a '...' image in the XML source code, as illustrated here:
