SAS Enterprise Guide 8.1 (EG) does not display the autocomplete list for snippets within a macro definition (i.e., between %MACRO and %MEND keywords.

 

EG does display the autocomplete for the snippet outside of the macro definition. EG also displays the autocomplete list for macro variables within the macro 

 

I have included screenshots below for the macro %ThisMacro and the snippet _Boo

 

%macro ThisMacro(
Var=/*boo*/
);

%mend;

Outside of the macro definition the autocomplete menu appears for snippet _Boo

Inside the macro definition, the autocomplete menu for macro variables appears

But inside the macro definition, the autocomplete menu for snippets does not appear

I have an older version of SAS EG (7.15) and  see a similar behavior, the abbreviations does not seems to work inside macros for some reason.
