The following makes for a nice snippet. It creates a figure when an image is dropped into the document.

\begin{figure}[${1:htbp}] \begin{center} \includegraphics[${2:scale=1}]{$GEDIT_DROP_REL_FILENAME} \end{center} \caption{$3}
\label{fig:$4} \end{figure} With drop target set to "image" in gedit 2.19.x. This version will be the stable version in about a month. Also, could you write actual commit meesages, please? ## Discussion • Logged In: NO The same thing could also be done for other mime types, like PDF (it’s the preferred vector graphics format for pdflatex). • Logged In: NO According to l2tabu this is better: \begin{figure}[${1:htbp}]
\centering
\includegraphics[${2:scale=1}]{$GEDIT_DROP_REL_FILENAME}
\caption{$3} \label{fig:$4}
\end{figure}

This is because \centering doesn't introduce an unnecessary vertical skip. And, it's shorter.

Hi,
