Suggested Snippets

How to Utilize Suggested Snippets

TextExpander can suggest new Snippets based on what you frequently type. After you have typed the same group of characters, letters, or words enough times, it will suggest you create a Snippet.


Once a word or phrase is typed often enough, TextExpander will inform you about this new snippet using Notification Center. From there you can choose:

  • Keep Suggestion: Assign the suggested snippet an abbreviation.
  • Drop Suggestion: Never recommend this group of characters as a snippet again.

Suggestion List

All the Snippet suggestions are collected in a Suggested Snippets group where they remain without abbreviations. This group can be found at the bottom left of the TextExpander app just under your existing Snippet Groups. You may choose to ignore them, add an abbreviation to complete them, or delete them.
