    Hi Chami

    Not sure if using Ctrl+Enter for Emmet as well as leaving it for <br /> is so great. A keyboard shortcut is a keyboard shortcut, IMHO, and should just do something rather than throwing an option.

    I've just set up my own new combo for <br /> to retain the functionality I prefer, I am not sure if I would use Emmet at this stage, but please be careful about what you choose to load up in future, I mean a Ctrl+J or similar shortcut for Emmet, considering its higher function, would be more appropriate?

    Thanks for the kit love though

      Hi David,

      Currently you can use Ctrl+E to expand Emmet code:

      but Ctrl+Enter is so easy to access that I thought it should have a
      greater role than inserting BR:

      What you see now for Ctrl+Enter is a placeholder. It'll be more useful
      in upcoming builds.

      Having said that, I'll also make it possible to redefine Ctrl+Enter to
      its old behavior.

          Hi Chami,
          I know this is an old post, but thought it relevant. Is there a way to update easily Emmet as it's a bit out of date the one on editor and also to change the Ctr+E to tabs which is much easier.

          Thanks,
          Nigel
