The Available Snippets Folders dialog
The Available Snippets Folders dialog


The Available Snippets Folders dialog allows you to create or remove snippets folders. Snippets folders are standard Windows folders that store snippets along with one or more sub-folders that can be used in future designs.


The dialog is accessed by clicking the button in the upper right corner of the Design Reuse panel, and choosing Snippets Folders from the associated menu.

The Design Reuse panel can be accessed when the UI.DesignReuse option is enabled in the Advanced Settings dialog. The Advanced Settings dialog is accessed by clicking the Advanced button on the System – General page of the Preferences dialog. If any changes are made in the Advanced Settings dialog, the software must be restarted in order for the changes to take effect.

When the UI.DesignReuse option is disabled in the Advanced Settings dialog, the Snippets panel is used for managing local snippets, and the Available Snippets Folders dialog can be accessed in the following ways:

  • Click Snippets Folders at the top right of the Snippets panel.
  • Right-click in the Snippets panel then click Add » Snippets Folder.


  • Open Snippet Folders - this region lists all snippet folders and their Path locations.
  • Move Up - use this button to move the selected snippet folder up one level. This button is only available when a child folder is selected.
  • Move Down - use this button to move the selected snippet folder down one level. This button is only available when the selected folder has child folders in the list.
  • Open Folder - use this button to open the Browse For Folder dialog to browse and select a snippet folder from your computer drives. The selected folder will be added to the list in the Open Snippet Folders region, and well as in the Snippets panel upon closing the Available Snippets Folders dialog.
  • Remove Folder - use this button to remove the selected snippet folder.
