How to get a list of all AutoText files in the left pane
your idea is indeed not simpler but will make it more complicated. Let qm figure out subfunction numbers it does it automatically already. We can however get rid of the text dialog.

I created a new dialog
looks like this


has multiline edit control for autotext statements. can be either normal or multiline autotext or can use it for making a template for keyAutoInput
still can can be launched by ctrl+shift+alt+a
will check if active window has selection and paste it into
multiline edit in dialog
template just needs the template code nothing else no leading space

Dear Mr. $inp_Customer$,

thank you for contacting us. The price is $$inp_Price$. Let's meet next $inp_Day$.

Myfile is here "$inp_Filepath$"

Thanks and best regards,

pcname is $var_pcname$


the dialog will add the remaining code needed to create the  autotext for the template

here try this out
