30 Days with IntelliJ IDEA. Folding
To keep our promise to publish a new article from our 30-day guide on the trickiest features of IntelliJ IDEA every week, today we are talking about code folding, a feature that helps you read and understand complex or lenghty pieces of code quickly.
Did you know?
Did you know that you can toggle folding of code blocks at the caret by invoking the Fold selection action via the shortcut Ctrl + “.” (Cmd + “.” for Mac).

Please read the complete article to learn more about this feature.
Develop with Pleasure!
