yes but you can use other keys to fold just the current function,
or even a while loop within a function or an if statement etc.
Its a very powerful feature and one of the reasons I use SciTe
as an alternative editor to vim (vim supports folding too but its
much more clunky IMHO). Using folding you can always collapse
a function to fit on a single screen and focus on just the 10-20
lines that really interrest you..
But for rapid movement around files Fold All, a mouse click
and then un-Fold All is very effective.
But I do agree that block level navigation seems a glaring gap
in Scintilla's features as a programmers editor
