A kate related question. How to use a text prompt?

Hi there. My environment: Ubuntu 12.04, I just installed kate as an editor. I noticed many nice features and one I liked quite a bit although I don't know how to benefit from it. I began typing

pi = 3.1415
and at this very moment a prompt appeared with about 15 decimal digits. How can I have it get pasted to the text? Is there a key shortcut for that?

Thanks, -A.

<Enter> or <Tab> should work. You can change if it is enabled in kate's config menu.
