Snippets: option to trigger expansion only after space,tab,newline

I really like the idea of Alfred managing my text snippets (I'm using a separate app for that so far).

 

However, when trying to migrate, I found that Alfred has no option to expand snippets only when typed as a entire word, i.e. trigger the expansion only after the snippet keyword has been terminated by a space or newline or tab. That's a feature available in most text expanding utilities I know, and if Alfred had it too, that would be great!

 

For now, I can include a space in the keyword, which is the most common case. Entering a tab or newline in the keyword field does not work (obviously).

It's not just tab of spaces, but also comma, dot, semicolon, colon, parentheses, brackets etc.

 

My intuition is that it should be a per-snippet (or per-snippet-group) setting to allow both behaviors.
