Do you feel that you are sometimes needed to create the same parts of code? Code snippets can easily help you.

For example, we need to create a Singleton class.

1. Create a code that you want to reuse.

2. Highlight Singleton code and press Editor -> Create Code Snippet.

3. Name it and write a completion shortcut.

You can easily add <# and #> from the start and end of any part of code, and it will create a placeholder part of the snippet. And thatโ€™s it. We are ready to use our shortcut. You can just type singleton_code.
