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

Recommended Posts

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).
