# [texworks] Maintaining indentation level with autocompletion

Hi all,

Is there a setting that I can adjust to maintain indentation level with autocompletion? I'm having trouble articulating what I mean, so perhaps I should provide an example.

Suppose I have typed the following ( represents a tab).
$A = matrix$
I now hit tab to trigger my autocompletion for "matrix" and TeXworks does the following (* represents a placeholder that I can jump to using tab).
$A = \begin{matrix} * \end{matrix}$
However, what I want is the following.
$A = \begin{matrix} * \end{matrix}$
Of course, I can make this particular example work by adding some tabs to the definition of my autocompletion. But what if matrix is two levels of indentations deep when I trigger autocompletion?
$A = matrix$
Then, my modified autocompletion would give
$A = \begin{matrix} * \end{matrix}$
when what I want is
$A = \begin{matrix} * \end{matrix}$
Hopefully you can see what I want. This is the way that vim snippets work, and I want the same behavior in TeXworks.

Best,
Tim
