    Within the list dialog open if you press "hide" the text between the list
    items of the current list will disappear. If your cursor is in the overall
    heading list, then everything but the headings will dissappear. If you ina
     sublist of the headings then just the text between items in the
    subheadings will disappear.

    Oh right. I'll need to invent another property to distinguish this type of
    hidden from other sorts of hidden. Luckily Tomas has encapsulated all the
    hidden text code within isHidden() functions so it should not be too hard
    to resue all his code.
