Getting Started

Once SnipMatch is installed, type control-enter (PC) or command-enter (Mac) to open the search box.
Start by searching for simple snippets: e.g. "if" and "print".
Next, try including arguments in your searches: e.g. "for myVar" (where myVar is a locally declared integer or array) and "print "hello"".
Now try inserting a snippet with a helper class: search for "capture screenshot" and select the top search result.
