Howdy,

First, { and ( already are word boundary characters. However, { (and \ also) behaves a bit differently than the other word boundary characters in that it becomes part of the word. That is so, e.g., writing

\begin{enu

and pressing the trigger can expand to a complete enumerate environment. But ( already works.

We don't have [ as a word boundary character but might consider doing so if there are good examples of how it would be used.

Good Luck,
