Is there way (a plugin) for assigning shortcut key to insert custom text?

Answered

I'm looking for a plugin which would allow me to assign a shortcut key that would insert predefined text into the editor.

For example, I'd assign Ctrl+R to insert "return" to text editor.

Is there some tool like this in IDEA?

Thanks.

P.S. I know about autocomplete and text suggestions in the app. But I really want to "press shortcut to enter piece of text".

You can use a live template, then record a macro to trigger it, than assign a keyboard shortcut to a macro, see https://stackoverflow.com/a/9639266/104891.

Amazing how simple it was, and it works just fine.

Thanks!
