Search Snippets on the Fly in TextExpander

Have a large number of snippets and can't remember them all your abbreviations? Use TextExpander's Suggest Matching Abbreviations search feature. It makes finding your snippets fast and simple.

Set your hotkey combination by going to TextExpander > Preferences > Hotkeys. Once it's set, to use the Suggest Matching Abbreviations hotkey combination:

  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.
