FAQ: What is a snippet? Is it the same thing as a clipping? How long can they be, is there a size limit?

The term “snippet” refers to the full text and / or picture(s) that TypeIt4Me will automatically insert in your document when any given abbreviation is expanded. In earlier versions of TypeIt4Me snippets were referred to as “clippings”, because they are items of content that are copied to and from the Mac’s clipboard. Snippets (i.e. the text and / or picture content inserted when you type an abbreviation and a trigger) can be up to 32,000 characters long.
