All Live Templates in Sidebar


I am new to PHPStorm and coming from IDE called RapidPHP. The best feature in RapidPHP was the code snippets (like Live Templates in PHPStorm) listed in a sidebar docking window. The advantage I see over having abbreviation system of PHPStorm is that I have all my snippets in front of me and I just need to double click it to activate it. In PHPStorm, I need to remember the abbreviation of the Live Template.

Is there any way I can have my Live Templates listed in a docking sidebar window (like Projects etc)?\

Hi there,

You cannot listed them there.

But, you can just hit special key and it will list all applicable Live Templates for you to complete:

"Code | Insert Live Template" -- Ctrl+J using Default keymap. If you want to see what that Live Template does -- hit Ctrl+Q (View | Quick Documentation) while completing it to see the preview/template body.
