I love notepad++ but cant find the feature described: Using a text outline defined by (TAB) as an outline (IE: Being able to fold/collapse based upon that hierarchy) I found another software that does it (jedit), but I would rather stick to Notepad++ because of its other features. For more info, this is also discussed and more extensively described here: http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/4796/5

Can that be done with Notepad++?

When I select YAML under the Language menu, it seems to work as you describe. You can use tabs to create your hierarchy.
