Assigning Categories to Snippets

You can assign categories to snippets. To show categories in the Snippets view, click the Preferences button at the top of the Contract Tools pane, and then select “Show categories” below Snippets.

New snippets are categorized as General. To change the category of a snippet, use the controls in the Building Blocks Organizer. To show the Building Blocks Organizer, choose Building Blocks Organizer from the Action pop‑up menu at the bottom of the Snippets view. You can also choose Insert > Quick Parts > Building Blocks Organizer.

After you change the category of a snippet, you may need to refresh the Snippets view to see your changes. To do this, choose “Refresh from Building Blocks” from the Action pop‑up menu at the bottom of the Snippets view.
