How to delete 'snippet'?


Recommended Posts

I created a snippet which contains some incorrect code. How do I delete or modify it please? I tried to simply create it again but ME won't let me give the corrected version an existing name.

 

BTW, the mistake I made is one I make frequently. Is there any way I can change the default delay from 100 seconds to 100 milliseconds?

The intuitive thing (barring the existence of a Right-click Snippet menu with an Edit option), would simply

to change the code and then "Add to Snippets" using the same name, then selecting Yes on a "Do you

wish to replace the existing snippet with that name" type prompt.

 

Unfortunately the prompt simply says "A Snippet with that name already exists."

 

What happens when you have a bunch of snippets that you thought you would use but then never do,

or don't need anymore? Your snippet list could get out-dated and unmanageable.

 

I have not found a way to get rid of the simple one that I created to test this feature (fortunately it's a

snippet that I may actually use on a regular basis).

Ummmmm.... Highlight the snippet and press the 'Delete' key.

 

To modify insert into a macro, delete the snippet, make changes, and recreate the snippet.

 

Thanks Cory - pretty intuitive once you know! :rolleyes:

 

But something in Help would be nice.

Yes, well I too have missed the 'intuitive' solution before. A few months ago I spent at least an hour trying to figure out how to change the macro icon... But that's why we have each other and this forum!
