Tip #10: Snippets

If you send lots of the same replies to common questions or just have content that you tend to type out over and over again, this will quickly become one of your favorite features in Intellect 4 because it is such a time-saver!

If you have frequently used text in emails, you can and should save your response as a snippet.

Behind the scenes, snippets are really a folder full of little .html files, each with commonly used content ready to drop into any email message you write.

In Intellect, though, the snippets are easily used and saved using the Snippets section of the toolbar at the top of every email you write.

To save a snippet, you should highlight a block of text that you want to make reusable. Then, press F8 on your keyboard or use the Save Snippet button on the toolbar (it is found to the right or below the font choice) or go to Edit and click on Save selection as Snippet. You will be prompted for a name for this text you have highlighted. Once saved, it will be added to the drop-down list of Snippets you can insert at your cursor position any time you need it in the future.

To use a snippet, just put your cursor right where you want the text to appear, then use the pull-down and pick the content you want. As soon as you make your choice, Intellect will paste that content right where your cursor is!
