Autoreplace in several lines

Hi,

How to achive that? Which character to place?

You’ll want to use Code Templates. See the Editor|Code Templates page in options. Create a new one assigning it your short name of mmm. Set its text your desired replace with value. To invoke type mmm followed by CTRL+Space.

Admittedly there’s a lot of overlap between Auto Replace and Code Templates. Code Templates being the more correct feature for this, many use Auto Replace instead and even Toad’s pre-canned Auto Replace values are Code Template-ish. I’ll log this to investigate C-style strings so you can escape newlines, tabs, etc.

Great.

Thank you

Damir, look for this in the first beta. Limited C-style string support is included to support tab (\t), carriage return (\r), and line feed (\n) escape sequences in the replace with value. Single slashes must be escaped using double slashes.

To accompany this change I moved the Auto Replace settings over to an XML file from Toad.ini to support future growth and allow for migration of legacy replace with strings to C-style.
