FAQ: Help, I’ve lost my snippets! Where are they? How do I get them back into TypeIt4Me?

If your snippets have gone AWOL, don’t panic. It’s highly unlikely that TypeIt4Me has mysteriously deleted them. Do a search in Finder for files ending in .typeit4me. Locate your abbreviations file in the list of search results and double click on it. This will automatically move it to the Sets folder and open it in TypeIt4Me, so you can carry on where you left off.

TypeIt4Me can lose track of your snippet set files if they are not stored on the same volume/partition as the startup system volume. It’s best to keep them together.
