    .

    I am on my way to configure Snippets plugin for keywords help.

    I have one snippets with keyword, e.g.:
    Name: MsgBox
    Trigger: MsgBox#
    Tip: -none
    Text: see quote

    MsgBox(prompt[,buttons][,title][,helpfile,context])

    I have another snippet with explanation and help, like:
    Name: MsgBox?
    Trigger: MsgBox?
    Tip: -none
    Text: see quote

    MsgBox(prompt[,buttons][,title][,helpfile,context])
    prompt Required. The message to show in the message box. Maximum length is 1024 characters. You can separate the lines using a carriage return character (Chr(13)), a linefeed character (Chr(10)), or carriage return–linefeed character combination (Chr(13) & Chr(10)) between each line
    buttons Optional. A value or a sum of values that specifies the number and type of buttons to display, the icon style to use, the identity of the default button, and the modality of the message box. Default value is 0

    0 = vbOKOnly – OK button only
    1 = vbOKCancel – OK and Cancel buttons
    2 = vbAbortRetryIgnore – Abort, Retry, and Ignore buttons
    3 = vbYesNoCancel – Yes, No, and Cancel buttons
    4 = vbYesNo – Yes and No buttons
    5 = vbRetryCancel – Retry and Cancel buttons
    16 = vbCritical – Critical Message icon
    32 = vbQuestion – Warning Query icon
    48 = vbExclamation – Warning Message icon
    64 = vbInformation – Information Message icon
    0 = vbDefaultButton1 – First button is default
    256 = vbDefaultButton2 – Second button is default
    512 = vbDefaultButton3 – Third button is default
    768 = vbDefaultButton4 – Fourth button is default
    0 = vbApplicationModal – Application modal (the current application will not work until the user responds to the message box)
    4096 = vbSystemModal – System modal (all applications wont work until the user responds to the message box)

    We can divide the buttons values into four groups: The first group (0–5) describes the buttons to be displayed in the message box, the second group (16, 32, 48, 64) describes the icon style, the third group (0, 256, 512, 768) indicates which button is the default; and the fourth group (0, 4096) determines the modality of the message box. When adding numbers to create a final value for the buttons parameter, use only one number from each group
    title Optional. The title of the message box. Default is the application name
    helpfile Optional. The name of a Help file to use. Must be used with the context parameter
    context Optional. The Help context number to the Help topic. Must be used with the helpfile parameter

    This above is only a example for a lot of help text.

    The first snippet MsgBox# will insert the command.
    The second snippet MsgBox? i use only to let display the help.

    Now to my improvement wish:
    I have tried to utilize the Tool Tip field
    of MsgBox# to show me the help as tip like MsgBox? does
    but insert only the command like MsgBox# does.

    Name: MsgBox
    Trigger: MsgBox#
    Tip: full help text here
    Text: command only here

    But unfortunately the amount of chars for the tip is limited to 259 signs.

    Question: can this be improved
    to let me use as much text as TIP
    as i can use for TEXT right now?

    That would prevent me from using two snippets for each command.
