Collapsible vba procedures
By default each procedure should only have the first procedure line (header) visible with an expand button to show all lines within the procedure. Currently a lot of time is spend scrolling through code.
I would also like to see the two drop downs for general and declarations changed to a tree view on the left so that I can more easily navigate procedures and methods.
This is not something the team is investing in the long term.

i lend full support and commend you juan soto. no brainer!
Would be quite useful. One step further would be collapsible blocks of code ([+]/[-] in the margin with line numbers ;-), which would also help seeing if/endif matches,

If I could only get one thing changed in MS Access/VBA this would be it.
Great idea! It would make me much more productive. Not only to avoid scrolling through hundreds of lines of code, but also to visualize code better. For example, I usually try to put my code in the sequence it runs (if there is a sequence). The sequence is not necessarily the alphabetic order of the procedure names.
I'd love this!
It's a very good idea!
Good idea, this would be a great help!
very good idea!

This is good idea. This would help us navigate more quickly, and be a big time saver.

Great idea Phill! Some modules have hundreds of routines and this suggestion will go a long way to improve productivity.
