vim Folding Creating a Fold Manually


  • zf{motion} creates a fold that covers the text that "motion" would cover.
  • {count}zF creates a fold that covers "count" lines.
  • {range}fo[ld] creates a fold for the lines in the provided range.

All three commands are valid only when foldmethod is set to manual or marker. In the case of the former fold method, the newly-created folds are closed immediately.
