In the past when I taught using the SAS display manager or with Enterprise Guide I gave my students a SAS keyboard macro file (.kmf) which would autocomplete short phrases that I created, like procSQL, into full snippets of code, like:
create table as
How can I implement keyboard macros in SAS An U? That is how can I define (and share) custom "words" which will be automatically replaced by blocks of code?
Thanks a bunch,

I believe that the intent of the "Snippets" pane is to allow the student to compile a library of code snippets that you can use. There are some pre-defined snippets there already (as shown in screen shot # 7. The screen shots attached show how a quick series of shots of starting with a new snippet, saving it, then using it as the basis of a new program and running the program.

How can I distribute dozens of snippets to hundreds of students? Is there really no way to import keyboard macros? If not, that shortcoming needs to be addressed.
