Microsoft will introduce a very neat feature in Word 15, which basically takes the idea of code folding from text editors to word processors. In long texts this can be extraordinarily helpful.
Please see here under section "Section expand and collapse": http://www.winsupersite.com/article/office/whats-coming-microsoft-word-15-142595
Thanks for new idea.
Sorry, not found where to see on link. It is something like this Bug 38093 ?
Or completely different?
Libreoffice should allow collapsing of sections .g. by toggling on the header.
Seems like this would fit well with improvements to the styling system.
I have MS Office 2013 and have seen this feature. I'll be happy to help if needed.
It "can" be a nice feature, if we're looking for parity between the two suites.
The link in the description is not as clear as it might be, which is understandable given it was looking toward a future product. Here is a clearer description of this feature:
A small triangular graphic indicator is set adjacent to headings to indicate collapse / expand functionality. That is all this feature does. This should make it clear that this is not same feature as indicated in bug #38093, which is more of an outline view / navigator facility i.e., that bug additionally deals with promotion / demotion and moving of headings and their related content.
In response to comment #3 please do not use the term "section" in relation to this type of feature. It has nothing to do with the Insert > Section... feature. What is being collapsed / expanded is a heading and all content that falls under this heading.
I am including this detail purely for information and clarity.
Added related Apache OO issue to See Also list. Version set to Inherited From OOo.
Setting version back from "Inherited From OOo" to what it was prior (for bugs marked enhancement), for QA tracking purposes. My mistake. Apologies.
This would indeed be a very helpful feature for writing long documents! Is there any way to vote for this feature to be implemented other than subscribing to the CC list?

Seems that we can do hide-show paragraphs at current Libreoffice version via macros: https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Hiding_Text
Maybe we can write extension, that automate this process - creating checkbox and variable for current paragraph?
