Thank you very much. I have two issues here :

1. I modifed

bequ:=$$#RET##INS##RET#$$•

into

bequ:=$$#RET#test#INS##RET#$$•

after restarting the texworks, I tried to complete \begin{equa

with Tab, but still I got

$$cursor$$•

what I added the word "test" did not appear

2. Tab+Ctrl seems not work on my machine, and I tried on other machine with Windows XP

neither of them work, instead I found the combination Tab+Ctrl can only realize the same function

as Tab on these machines. The combination Tab + Ctrl works fine on my linux.

Sorry to bother you with these questions, Thank you.
