I've used autohotkey, but I don't know how that would be any better than using the stored macros in notepad++.
I know that most text editors allow you to save macros, but I really like to idea of having a dedicated key for a particular snippet.
Seems kinda contradictory, or not? Oh wait I see you saying you like it narrowed down to one key only rather than a key combination. I still have not tried out autohotkey myself, as actually I don't really like having to remember "hot" keys combinations myself (though the cheat sheet would be an absolute must - I have not used x-keys either but looks like an o.k. tool if you don't mind another piece of junk on your desk :). I was actually thinking of autohotkey for some application launching type of uses perhaps, still debating uses for that with me-self.
Surely programmers don't type out everything over and over, that just seems unproductive to me.
