Had no idea how to use it at first, would have liked a lot more hand holding and prompting to start with. Otherwise, great little tool.

Quite useful. I use it very frequently.
It's slightly awkward to use sometimes.

I wish it had a "view XML" tab on the editor or something too.

Thanks. The "view xml" tab is a great idea. I added a work item for it here:

Exactly what I was looking for. A great experience and a huge productivity boost for our team.

Useful program. But I had to knock off two stars due to a serious bug which caused me to lose all the work I'd just done on a snippet. Clicking save produced no errors, caused the "*" to be removed from the editor tab and allowed it to be closed. But the changes were lost. On closer investigation I noticed that it had appended the snippet path to itself. This happened a few times but I haven't figured out how to reproduce it.

Sorry that you had issues. Thanks for making me aware of this though. Can you file a bug on with repro steps. Thanks!

Snippet editor is the best I've seen, and snippet explorer is a great idea. With these 2 tools, it's easy to integrate snippet creation and usage smoothly into your workflow.

So I wanted to see what snippets I could start using in VS 2010, and realized there was no way to browse the built-in snippet collections. What??

Snippet Designer to the rescue. Not only does it allow you to create new snippets on the fly from your code, but it also includes a much-needed Snippet Explorer, to browse what snippets are currently available.

It was like a soothing salve applied directly to my brain. Thanks!

Great project.

Please add more
- Syntax highlighting
- Snippet library management
- The grid has a bug that when something is selected it gets sticky and doesn't unselect
