"Folding" is applicable mostly to outlines, and it's where there are elements,
say, I, II, and III. Each one has lots of sub-elements, i, ii, etc... However,
Upon opening this outline, I don't need to see all the sub-elements, and in
cases where it's a rather huge-ish outline, it just wouldn't be smart to be
forced to see it all at once. Rather, only seeing the I, II, and III elements
would be best, having an + and - symbol next to it or something, that displays
whether there are sub-elements under it or not. Clicking it would turn a + into
a -, or visa versa. If it's "-", it means clicking on it will display less. If
you press a "+" it will display more. 
I'm finding it rather difficult to explain, so checking out the FreeMind project
would most likely offer a peek on what I'm talking about. More specifically,
check out, and you'll
see what "folding" is. 

I feel this is a particularly important feature to serious note-takers in
college classes. Surely there are even more uses.

Thanks for contributing. The main focus these days is on reparing defects but
once in a while someone like me looks through the RFE section as well. You might
be interested to know that there is already an Issue requesting an "Outline
View". Please vote there, since I will close this as a duplicate.
