Frequently Asked Questions

Can I assign a shortcut key to a certain snippet?

This is on the wish list, but I don’t think it is possible. Shortcut key are assigned to menu items when the plug-ins are loaded. But individual snippets are not menu items. And shortcut keys need to be dynamic. When you change the library, the key assignments need to change on the fly.

Consider Ctrl-B: this could be bold in HTML, break in a c-styled languages and a begin/end block in Pascal.

But a pointer to a way to implement this is, or even better a pull request that fixes this is much appreciated.
