# manual folding of latex using vim-latex

In my vimrc, for vim-latex-suite I have used (as described here)

  let g:Tex_FoldedMisc = 'preamble,!!!'


with the expectation that it will fold the text inside

\noindent{%!!!
....
%!!!


I won't like to use the default <<<, as for my other setup, << is mapped to <>, and hence trying !!!.

But this is not working. Am I missing something?

As mentioned in the documentation for Tex_FoldedMisc that you linked to:
Unlike the other Tex_FoldedXXXX variables, the words in this setting are limited to take values from the following list.
And while the list includes preamble and <<<, it doesn't include other triplets of symbols such as !!!.
The documentation seems quite explicit that <<< (with the corresponding >>>) is the only set actually supported by this option, using a different symbol will just not work.
• oh...sure! its even more explicit with "Any other words in the Tex_FoldedMisc setting are silently ignored." Somehow I missed it, with the first line as default value is. – BaRud Sep 14 '20 at 18:22
