Is it possible to select variables instead of typing?

Is it possible to select variables instead of typing?

I would like to know if it is possible to select the variable instead of typing it every time.

For example, If a variable is defined in the bigening of the sheet and has to be used later in different equations. At the moment user have to type in the variable every time and it is possible to make a typing mistake, which would make the equation incorrect.

In visual studio, once you start typing it will show all the matching previously defined variables, is there a functionality like that?

Thanks

This would be a good tool in Mathcad.

Now I recommend my students to type a new variable only once, and then copy and paste it in a new place.

That kind of feature is not implemented (yet?).

I agree that it would be a handy feature. maybe you should fire up an "idea" here in the forum.

BTW, we already can see how it could look like in SMath Studio (http://smath.info/)
