Is it possible to have a collapsible tree for text

say line 1
   line 2 (collapsed)  
        line 3 (also collapsed)

This way I could expand only the sections I want?  Excel has this (called grouping) but I cannot find this in word at all.

How can I get this kind of thing for a standard word doc?

That sounds like Word's Outline View. Have you tried it (View menu)? There is an Outline toolbar (View/Toolbars) to help with it.

unbelievable...  I was about to type "you can't collapse or expand".   Indeed you can.  Slick!  

Sometimes the simplest answers do the trick.  If I could just get one-note to do that?

I'd like to have that capability in shared docs online.  Any suggestions?
