Is there any way how to collapse all blocks in ruby code in Notepad++?

It is much easy to navigate the code of functions, routes in Sinatra and blocks in rufus if all blocks are collapsed.

You can use the options under view.

The one that you are looking for is Fold all but you might find some of the other fold/collapse ones helpful.

The shortcut is alt+0 for fold all and alt+shift+0 for unfold all. Thank you. – Radek Jun 12 '12 at 23:55
If the shortcut is not working for you, make sure you use the 0 above the letter keys, the one on the numpad doesn't seem to work (with an AZERTY keyboard). – Stijn Apr 3 '14 at 15:24
Or my QWERTY keyboard FYI @Stijn – Jeff Jun 12 '14 at 21:17
This shortcurt also works for XML code. – Stephan Mar 11 at 14:23

Short Cuts to collapse & expand :

1) To collapse/fold all blocks - Alt+0

2) To expand/unfold all blocks - Alt+Shift+0

3) To collapse current level - Ctrl+Alt+F

4) To expand current level - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F

The above question's superset is as follows : Notepad++ expand/collapse block with keyboard
