Customize cursor position in Texniccenter autocompletion

Postby gondolier » Sat Sep 10, 2016 10:37 pm

For example, the following in math.xml makes possible autocompletion for the "equation" envirionment

  1. <lxEnvironment name="equation"
  2. parameters="1"
  3. desc="Math environment"
  4. icon="math.bmp"
  5. index="10"
  6. expafter="}&#xA;&#xA;\label{eq:}&#xA;\end{equation}"
  7. expbefore="\begin{"/>

so that when I type "equ" and hit Ctrl+Space, the following is autocompleted

  1. \begin{equation}
  2. \label{eq:}
  3. \end{equation}

I want to ensure that after the autocompletion, the cursor stops at a given place, say, after "eq:". Right now, it stops at the empty line. I was not able to change the behavior by playing with the parameters in the xml code. I am using Texniccenter 2.02. I vaguely remember it is possible to achieve this effect in Texniccenter 1, forgot how to do it.

I am looking for the exact same thing. I remember searching forever about two years ago and not finding anything. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
