Code folding

I like the new code folding look and feel. The old one cluttered the interface. The new one is nice and easy.

But (there is always a but :) ) now the CodeFolders-Plugin does not work anymore. That makes code folding less interesting once again.

I'd like to see the features of the CodeFolders-plugin integrated into IDEA. That would be great.

I also generally like the new folding l&f better but there is one aspect
I don't like as much. The left margin with the space makes me think my
code isn't left justified, that I have an extra space leading space. The
previous folding had a very light gray line that made it clear where the
left margin is. Could that be added back or perhaps something else done?

Thanks,
Jon

That probably should be adressed to the plugin's author. Probably some of
non-public API's (PSI, etc) was changed and this causes problems.

Which features exactly?

Folding of blocks in general and not only classes, methods and JavaDocs. CodeFolders could fold if, while, for, try, catch etc. blocks.

The ability to fold arbitrary sections of the code (by defining the start
and the end of a folding block) would be good as well (something similar to
what VS .NET has). I'd love to be able to get those getters and setters out
of the way.

The code folding in general is great, but:
it slows down IDE a lot, and I always unfold the code right after opening a java file, not to become irritated by occasional 5sec reaction to scrolling down 1 line.

It would be great if editor was as fast with folded code as with unfolded.

Igor,

would you please provide some details on what is average file lengths,
number of methods in class and what is your hardware configuration.
I personally do not see any difference between folded/unfolded code editor
behavior.
What others would say?

Code folding has worked well for me for a long time - my folding defaults
are imports and javadocs.

No problem here either. I use the default folding setting.
