Hi Guys,

Is there any shortcut key to create a comment line with all the stars in between, like below?

 

/****************************/

 

I feel I need to use add this line of comment very often to separate different portions of sas code,

everytime I have to manually add the stars between /*  */

 

wondering is there anyway to create a shortcut key to do this for quicker coding?

 

 

Thanks a lot!!!!

Which environment?

 

Editor abbreviations

KEYS entry with the Display Manager System

 

Code snippet (though I'm not sure that accessing those is any quicker than typing)

Yes. But the answer totally depends on what you are using as an editor.

Assign that to macro variable and keep calling 🙂 

 

%let comment=%str(/)****************************%str(/);
%put &=comment;
