Preferably by toggle or folding. Like Workflowy/Roam.
Feature in Roam that allows you to easily collapse/show sub-bullets. Helps to "clean up" a large list that you don't always want to show.

This is now officially on our radar for the next couple months, probably prior to calendar.
Ability to collapse selected blocks (bullets, headers, etc.) works really great within a note, as it enhances user experience with longer forms. My personal use case is notes "distillation" procedure: I keep generic "on the fly" notes as collapsed block, while those "distilled" are kept visible (unfolded).
Lists of bullet points can quickly clutter the page. It'd be nice to be able to collapse bullet points.

This, combined with an auto-updating Table of Contents sidebar and some quick-toggle buttons, would be an incredibly powerful toolset, especially when working with longer notes. I used Roam for a while and one of the biggest weaknesses I found was content overload: it’s easy to get lost amidst an endless sea of bullet points given the more unstructured UI. Amplenote’s structure already makes it easier to find information, so the addition of collapsible outlines alongside an easy way to navigate them would carry this advantage even further.
It would be nice if subtasks remain as subtasks & be collapsable on the main TASKS overview page... currently all the subtasks from NOTES show up a primary tasks there.
This might be a strange deal breaker but it has become one for me now, I'm so used to this after a year on roam. Once this feature is implemented I'm switching, when might that be? Thanks
Adjustable pane widths
Never realized how much I need this feature. After using Roam and Remnote for a while, this is a dealbreaker for me. It allows you to really clean up a page by collapsing all the sections.
Expanding/collapsing bullet points would be an important feature. Also, please increase the line spacing to make it easier to read, especially when you have a longer piece of text. And don't forget to add the vertical guidelines, also for better readability. Thanks.
Not even necessarily collapsible but just having subtasks move with their parent would be a big step forward
Great idea! -- In addition to collapse/expand of indented entries also zoom-in would be a nice feature (cf. outliners like Workflowy or Dynalist)
Thanks for all the votes and suggestions everyone! This is now live as described in our recent blog post https://www.amplenote.com/blog/product_updates_mobile_calendar_collapsible_bullets_templates_more. We also implemented a list selection mode and the ability to drag and drop a set of potentially hierarchical (siblings also work) bullet or task nodes into a hierarchy. We're actually still polishing this feature to see whether we can get a left border on the selected collapsible group, but all of the basic functionality for this is now live across all platforms. :-)
Yes! Just saw this yesterday.
Thanks so much for publishing this change! Is there any plan to extend this feature to Headings as well—ie. allow users to collapse all the content underneath a H1/H2/H3 tag?
Hey John! Collapsing headings is underway!
