I never use them even though I hate reading large files. I would rather split my code into files as best I can, based on functionality. I feel that hiding your code by folding it means that you’re less likely to make it better because you don’t have to face it as often.

What do you think? Can using code folding and minimaps reduce the quality of your code?

(Minimaps are a fairly new feature, I think, so if you don't know what I'm talking about, here's an example.)
