PowerGui - a free community for PowerGUI, a graphical user interface and script editor for Microsoft Windows PowerShell!
www.powergui.org/

Just as an hint: see how PowerGui insert snippets at e.g. 04:00, 08:15 and 12:48
(it's like HippoEDITs Command-Hints, just an pop-up, no side bar)

hi Stefan,

thanks for the link. There are some interesting ideas in the video, I have not seen before.
About way to insert template, do not know. From one side good that you can have several levels selection, and maybe you can edit it, but what I do not like, that they have overlap this window on top of the selected text... But this can be solved.

Maybe I will evaluate the way of inserting templates, but only as extension, because here are snippets is not 100% same as code templates in HE. For example, the scenario which is different for me is when you type if, I want ot get suggestion to expand it to wide representation.
But as a way for interactive selection, is really comfortable. As a replacement for a workaround we have currently when code templates are mixed in code completion list.

Best regards,
Alex.
