Is there a way to create "sub-folding" / "sub-sections"?

Hi,
I know I can create sections in my script editor with
%%
Question is, can I make several layers of 'sectioning'?
I mean, similar to headings in WORD...
Something like:
%%_1
%%_1.1
%%_1.1.1
that way I could organize, divide & fold my code as I please...
Thank you!

To my understanding, you want to make several layers of sectioning in a MATLAB script.
This is possible when you have loop (such as for loop), conditional statement (such as an if statement) or functions in the script.
You can refer to Create and Run Sections in Code MathWorks documentation page to learn more on the behavior of sections in functions or behavior of sections in loops and conditional statements.

Thank you @Prateek Rai
Indeed I'd like to have several layers of sectioning in my MATLAB script.
But! Point is, I don't want to restrict my self only to loops , ifs , etc...
I want to have a complete freedom in defining my layers (again, similar, to writing document in WORD).
For example, I could have a code doing some Task 1.
Below that there is a section of Task 1.1
Below that there is a section of Task 1.1.1 & Task 1.1.2 & Task 1.1.3 & etc...
I'd like to have the possibilty to fold ALL the code below Task 1.1 (would hide 1.1.1 - 1.1.1)
OR
fold only 1.1.1 & 1.1.2 - and continue working on 1.1.3
Does it make more sense now?
