Have to agree. Have you ever seen that picture of MS Word with all its menus active so there is no room to see the text you enter? TeXmaker (and, I assume TeXstudio which branched off from TeXmaker) looks like that to me. I much prefer a spare menu with features I can access via the keyboard.

I guess I also don't like editors that fold because I find it very disturbing to have things expand and contract as the cursor passed through them. If automatic-(un)folding can be turned off then I'm sure I'd miss reading some text with typos, etc., that is folded out of the way.

If it sounds like I'd suggest emacs I have no problem with that editor. I find TeXShop MUCH easier to configure to my taste with just enough mouse interaction for my use.

Good Luck,
