[oXygen-user] shortcuts for special characters

Hi James,

Just to clarify. My proposal was to have an insert template action that 
will show templates without filtering on already entered prefix - as 
this filtering makes the templates not to appear when you use CTRL+Space 
once you already have something typed in after a space.
So basically that action will be equivalent in terms of functionality with

Press space
... here you can insert a template or not ...
Remove the space added in step one

I will add also your idea with defining shortcuts for templates to the 
Jira entry.
