Use live templates for markup elements

Writerside already has a bunch of built-in live templates for frequently used markup fragments, like tabs, tables, lists, procedures, and more. They made you write some more complex markup fragments quicker. They work in both .md and .topic files.

We provide two types of templates:

  • live templates: use them to create a markup element with predefined structure, for example, a 3x3 table.

  • emmets: use them to specify a number of list elements or table rows and columns at the time of creation.

To check all available templates and customize them for your needs, go to Settings/Preferences | Editor | Live Templates | Writerside.

To restore a modified one to the default view, go to the Settings / Preferences dialog, right-click the template which you want to restore and click Restore default.

To use a live template, type the corresponding template abbreviation and press Tab. Keep pressing Tab to jump from one variable in the template to the next one. Press Shift+Tab to move to the previous variable.
