The Amazon Rainforest, spanning across South America, boasts unparalleled biodiversity.
It covers an expansive area of approximately 5.5 million square kilometers, playing a crucial role in the Earth’s climate regulation.
This magnificent ecosystem is often referred to as the “Lungs of the Earth” due to its vital role in producing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide
I’m looking for something that allows me to shrink/hide some parts of the text, that turns the text above looks like the below, and if i click it could expand to show more detail

Impossible without AI or a plugin that knows all the linguistic rules in which it would truncate clauses, but based on what? Only the user knows what should be ellipted as sometimes important stuff comes in main clauses, other times in subordinate clauses (after logical operator words like if, because, since, but there is also and, or, bar/barring, etc.).
I am also affected by this because my lines feel too verbose and I can no longer find text easily in my documents.
A workaround would be an outliner sort of approach with links to where the elaborations are (same document or separate documents) or alternatively, having a footnote approach, which I neglect to use anymore.
Also, one needs to be mindful of how the text would look like online, in Word/Pages/Scrivener/whatever if one wants to publish one’s material.
Would it be an option to use highlighting for this? It shouldn’t be hard to write CSS which defaults to hide a highlighted section and display the ellipse, and then make it reappear when hovering over the ellipse.
This would of course require manually highlighting the text as you work through it, adding
== before and after.
Thanks for the suggestion bro, i already use highlight a lot, so you think i could use other type of shortcut like \\some text here\\ and make css identify this ? (could be any other shortcut )
i meant the user make the ellipse, not AI, but obsidian dont have a native way to do that.
