By Command Completion what do you do when you have a complex environment with possible arguments (optional and/or required)? Do you have to ``grow'' it in sections? Can you control the position of the cursor? Jump to different arguments if you can build it completely? Can you have information that tells you what the different arguments can contain? Have you tried the Command Completion that is already built into TeXShop?

I still thing a Macro is the best way to go for this kind of ``completion''.

Good Luck,
