  1. Type a few characters of your snippet or its abbreviation.
  2. Press your hotkey combination immediately after typing the characters. (Don't enter a space before pressing the hotkey combination.)
  3. A popup menu appears with all snippets that contain the characters you typed. Scroll through them and click the one you want.
