Code Snippets

Overview of code snippets

Code snippets allow for quick insertion of code and tags using keystroke combinations.


The code snippet palette

Any keystroke that is not currently used by the system can be used for your snippet.

Note: If it is used by the system or HyperEdit already, it will probably beep (and the shortcut field will not be updated). Simply choose another combination.

Command-keys are not required, so even regular letters can be used. For example, the "enter" key (on the numeric keypad) is by default set to generate a <br>.

Groups of one level can be created for organizational purposes. Double-clicking a snippet will insert it into the document, whereas double-clicking a group will allow you to rename it. Simply drag and drop snippets or groups to rearrange them.
