I know that Texmaker had this feature, but I decided to switch to Texstudio and this is probably the only thing I miss about Texmaker. I would assume that having this feature in Texstudio is possible as Texstudio is a fork of Texmaker, but I am not sure how to get this feature to work. Does anyone know how to go about doing this?


Go to Options > Configure > Shortcuts. Then you can choose the key for Next placeholder or one word right.

But if you choose a very useful key (like Tab) you have to change its behavior also in the Tab or indent selection (because does not make sense to have two functions for the same key).
