Fold / unfold accessibility is cumbersome

Foldable checkbox / todo support is great, but burying referring functions statically within `Format -> Fold` without even a keyboard shortcut makes it cumbersome to use.

Suggesting the following improvements
* As soon as a note contains foldable items, fold / unfold should become available in the note sidebar
* When (auto) folding is used, it's used frequently, so keyboard shortcuts make sense

    Hi,

    consider you can add a shortcut to any menu bar item in MacOS, here a quick FAQ
    http://www.bear-writer.com/faq/Shortcuts%20and%20more/Customise%20M...

    You can also click to unfold a section, but I suspect you want all the sections of the note unfolded (correct me if I'm wrong).

    We want to expand folding to reach something more useful for outlining, but so far we don't have to a place for an "expand all" button.

    Cheers.

    thanks, I wasn't aware it's possible to assign shortcuts freely by menu name.

    looks to me there's plenty of space no? (screenshot)
    especially considering this one could remain hidden for notes without checkboxes.

    On MacOS yes, but we don't have those icons on iOS.
