I was talking about template structures. I know about the auto-completion, invoked by ctrl+space, but unfortunately that is only for one line or one word completion only and not for template structures like:
- Code: Select all
Right now in UE32 i would have to assign that template to a slot of 1-20 and then assign a keyb shortcut for it, say alt-shift-1. I am limited to only 20 (because any coder hates to keep using the mouse to go into menus) and will have to remember and press ugly and different shortcuts for each asigned template.
Almost every decent editor out there can do template insertion based on a typed word then a single keyb shortcut. For the example above i would type "switch" then press CTRL+Enter and get the template inserted, the cursor positioned between the paranthesis etc. Same goes for "if" then ctrl+enter and so on. This way you are not limited to 20 templates, you have only 1 keyb-shortcut easy to remember and handy and coding would be much faster since you just keep typing.
Honestly, I'm surprised that this isn't already implemented because theer are so many other features that are simply excelent. Any chance of seeing this in a future release?
