Place a command like the following in your instance.acl file, so it is called every time a file is opened of that particular doctype. This makes a dropdown list available of just the specified entities. The reduced list is available if you click on the small down arrow. Users still would have access to the complete list of symbols by clicking on the Omega symbol icon.

Code: Select all

set entitylist = "alpha beta rarr epsiv Oslash pi Theta sim Aring equiv";
