how do you mean, How you get the text you saved in snippet bin?

Well, agiledev has a pretty good system. Lemme try to explain: you have a trigger: 2 slashes > ‘//’. That’s the first thing you have to type.

If you look in the snippet bin window, on the left you see categories, expand those, they’re just so you don’t lose track of your different shortcuts. in the categories, the shortcuts are listed.

Shortcuts are the words you can write after the ‘//’.

When you click on a shortcut, a textbox opens with code in it, and there are some tabs too, but i’ll explain those in a sec.

If you write ‘//list’ and then space, anywhere, snippet bin is gonna get the default text from ‘list’ shortcut. The default text is the textfield in the ‘default’ tab. Those are the basics..

The tabs just give you sub-options, you just add a tab with whatever name you think is logical as a subname, like ‘compact’ and put things in the textfield, then if you want to get the ‘compact’ tab from the shortcut ‘list’, type ‘//list_compact’ you see? But you don’t have to use the tabs if you don’t like em. You should also check out parameters, they’re explained in the preview video

And I must say I have very good experiences with the guys from agiledev, they are REALLY helpful, you can tell they take pride into their product.
