Expand keywords

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 20-Sep-2013 11:22

I have expand keywords checked, but I have pasted in some code from an outside source and while the keyword casing is corrected on save, the keyword expansion is not.  Is there some other option?

This is in 11.2.1 (I have been waiting on installing 11.3 because I want to look at integrating another product)

There is a keyword casing on save setting , but I don't believe there is a setting for expand keywords on save.

Check in preferences.

Hi Thomas,

We have a setting in the Preferences 'Apply keyword(s) casing on save' whose ABL Code gets modified (if casing differs) upon saving the class file. However, we do not have specific option for 'Expand Keywords'.

Other Option related to expand keywords available in Preferences 'As you type' Expand keywords.

Explicitly one can expand keywords using the shortcut 'CTRL+SHIFT+1'.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Anil Kumar.

That does help ... except for having to remember all these key codes!

Yes, I know how to bring up the help, but one has to know what the thing is called to find it very easily.
