GTM: Place selected variable in the field where the cursor is instead of at the end of existing text.

Nick Guebhard 10 months ago in Tag Manager updated by Supermetrics Support Team 10 months ago 3

This is the end goal:  


{{variable 2}} {{variable 1}}


If you have a variable in a field already, e.g. 

{{variable 1}} 

and then you want to add a variable into the field before the existing one where your cursor is:

| {{variable 1}}

when you select the variable you want to add, GTM doesn't insert the variable where your cursor is, it places it after your existing variable, e.g.:

{{variable 1}}{{variable 2}}

It annoys the hell out of me!

Ok, I see what you mean now. I'm afraid this isn't something I can fix easily and it's quite a marginal use case, so I will reject this suggestion for now and continue the work on additional features.

Under review

That's odd - I tried to reproduce the problem and I can't. If I type {{ it expands to show the list of variables, and when I pick on it ads it where my cursor is. I was even able to brake my code by inserting a variable mid-way into another variable.

I should have been more specific.  It's when I click on the lego brick and then it opens up the Variables screen and select from there.  Maybe that's the answer... type {{ and select from within the drop-down.
