I want to use facility of gedit to insert snippets.

The documentation suggests (doc):

Using snippets

Install the plugin. Menu: Tools -> Manage Snippets. A dialog will appear and you can start add snippets. Select a 'Language' (or Global for global snippets). Start adding snippets.

I found the folder /usr/share/gedit-2/plugins/snippets where all snippet xmls are located, but unfortunately was not able neither use snippets nor edit them.

How is it possible to use snippets in gedit? I am using the version 2.30.3.

  • I have found an answer! Edit->Preferences->Plugins->Snippets! BTW, where is the possibility to answer own questions!?
