Eg. I want it to, when I type \begin{figure} and press enter, autocomplete the following:


I am using TexStudio and \usepackage{graphicx}

I know that when I type for example \begin{itemize}, it autocompletes the following:


So my question is: Is there a way to customize what autocompletes when entering certain commands?

Thank you.

  • You can create a macro and give a shortcut to it.

  • Also if you use \centering all the time, you can look at tex.stackexchange.com/a/53383/56823.

You can make a macro as mentioned by @Sigur, or define the autocompletion in your own cwl. For example, you can create a file usercmds.cwl containing

# usercmds.cwl
\begin{figure}[!htb]%\  \centering%\    \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{}%\  \caption{}%\    \label{}%\\end{figure}

and follow the instructions outlined here to permanently activate completion from this cwl.


The other solution I have is to create a macro \myfigure. You can add a shortcut to it or have the command to automatically replace it. Here is the config
