Synopsis: Top and Bottom "note" - can we have a Hide / Show feature?

Hello !

If anyone has too much time at hand, how about this "nice to have" enhancement to the EiffelStudio editor.

Please implement a preference setting that allows to show or suppress the top and / or bottom "note" entries while editing. Including a quick access icon in the toolbar to toggle the view.

To me these notes are visual clutter that distract from reading the relevant source code, they take up screen estate and require me to scroll past, especially at top.

Luxury Implementation: 
Preference settings that list 'acceptable' tags to display even when generally set to hide. Like the "note Description:" as most valuable visible entry.
