I'm using current texworks in Mac TeXShop. Is there some way to cause 
the texworks editor to supply automatically the \end{env} part of a 
\begin{env}...\end{env} environment delimiters after I type the 
"\begin{env}" part?

This is something I'm accustomed to doing in WinEdt under Windows (with 
any TeX engine). There, for example, if I type


and press Alt-Enter, the editor automatically inserts a blank line after 
what I typed, automatically types \end{enumerate}, and positions the 
cursor back at the start of the blank line, so what I have is:


A great time-saver.

I'm told that the Mac is a more user-friendly place to work than a PC 
with Windows, but I cannot even find documentation about such a feature 
for texworks (or TeXShop).
