No there is not. I do not care for ALT+/ myself. What key binding combination do you think is better?

Johannes H. Jensen (joh) said : #2

I'm used to Ctrl+Space from Eclipse, but Ctrl+Shift+Space is also common. It would be nice if it was configurable inside the plugin though :-)

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #3

In gedit, Ctrl+Space activate snippets, Ctrl+Shift+Space conflicts with the HTML <br /> snippet. GDP used the latter binding until it was discovered that it conflicted. Gedit's snippets take precendence so the GDP key binding silently cease to work.

Ctrl+ALT+Space is also taken by a gedit snippet :(
Super+Space is taken by GNOME do.

Since many GDP user are also snippiet and GNOME do users, I switched chose the '/'.

Ah I see. It would be nice if all of those key bindings were configurable then, but I guess that's a feature not currently in gedit..?

The snippet binding can be updated using Tools > Manage snippets. User do not though.

I reported a bug to make GDP's accellerator configurable.
