Snippets are custom-made, reusable design elements that you can add to your page by simply dragging and dropping. You can learn more about creating your own snippets in this article.
The snippets drawer allows you to create folders to place your snippets in, to keep them organized. You can create as many folders as you want. To create a new folder, click the “Add New” button and select “New Folder…”
Renaming Folders and Snippets
Any snippet or folder can be renamed by double-clicking on it and then typing the new name.
Reorganizing Folders and Snippets
You can move snippets around to different folders by simply dragging and dropping them.
Folders can be moved around in the same way. You can also drop folders inside other folders, to create hierarchical organization.
To make a copy of a snippet, select it and click the “Duplicate” button:
When you duplicate a snippet, you’ll be asked to provide a name and a destination. If you’re the member of more than one account, you can choose which account you’d like to save the snippet to. You can also choose the destination folder.
This workflow can be useful if you want to spend a while designing some snippets in your personal account, then copy them to your team account they’re finished, making them available to others.
Deleting Folders and Snippets
Any snippet can be deleted from the snippets drawer by selecting it, then clicking the “Delete” button or hitting <delete> on your keyboard.
Deleting a snippet from the drawer has no effect on sites that have already used that snippet (once placed, a snippet does not retain any connection with the snippets drawer.)
Be careful deleting snippets from the drawer, though, because the action cannot be undone! If you are a user of Team Edition and you delete a snippet from your team’s account, everyone else on the team will also lose access to it.
Folders can be deleted from the snippets drawer in the same manner. However, a folder must be empty before it can be deleted. You’ll need to remove any snippets from it first.
Editing Existing Design Snippets
If you want to make changes to an existing snippet, just drag it onto the page, make your changes, and re-save it as a new snippet. You can then delete the old one if you want to replace it entirely.
