Language-Specific Aliases
« on: May 08, 2008, 01:53:54 PM »
Language-specific aliases are similar to directory aliases except they can be used in edit windows for any frequently used text, like comment headers and language structures.

To create a language-specific alias, from the main menu, click Tools > Options > Languages, expand your language category and language, then select Aliases. On the Alias option page, click New and enter a short text snippet that you can easily remember for the alias name, then click OK. Back on the Options dialog, select the new alias, then enter the text substitution for the alias in the text box on the right. Click OK on the Options dialog. 

Now when you have a buffer or file open in that language, you can use the alias by typing the identifier and pressing Ctrl+Space.
