How to create a snippet?

Make sure you have the OSlash browser extension installed on your system to create a snippet. 

If you don’t, follow the steps on our Getting Started page.

Once the extension is up and running, follow these steps to create a snippet.

From text

  • Select the text you want to create the snippet for
  • Right click (Or Ctrl + click for Mac) on the selected text
  • Click on Save as shortcut
  • This will open the OSlash browser popup window
  • Give your snippet a name in the input text field
  • Change access settings (Public/Workspace/Personal) if needed
  • You can also edit the content if you like in the rich text input field
  • Add any variable values if necessary. Variable values can help you customize the text copy if needed. Some template variables will be available by default.
