👋 Anyone knows how to disable the auto-folding of these string references in Android Studio? It’s really annoying to always see just “…”. I tried to disable Editor > General > Code Folding > Fold by default > Android > String references Without any luck. Is there maybe an Annotation or comment to disable it for a file?

Can't solve it blindly, but a few things I can think of: • when changing the folding settings, it will not change open files, so you need to re-open file (works for me)/restart IDE (surely works) • folding regions might be remembered per file, so it only takes effect on unopened files? try manually expanding and re-open/restarting • I remember seeing "..." previews in the context of this bug, see repro code comments in `#1`/screenshots in
. Try to upgrade to latest AS (Hedgehog) + AGP 8.2 in build.gradle files. (I see previews in HH + AGP 8.1.x, see attached, and toggling the setting works after re-opening the file.) If neither of these work, report a new bug at

Thanks for the recommendations! • I tried reopening the files before. Haven’t tried a restart yet. • Also considered if they get remembered and tried exactly that. • I’ll have a look at the bug later and might try the latest stable AS version (currently on Iguana | 2023.2.1 Canary 16). Already use AGP 8.1.x.
