Great tool for the management of snippet.
Would it be possible to add the type "SQL_SSDT" for T-SQL editor of VS2013?

Thank You

I download the source code of the plugin, but both my vs2012 and vs2013 said that the project SnippetDesigner and SnippetDesignerComponents are not compatible. I have no idea what's wrong here. My compiler are vs2012 ultimate and vs 2013 ultimate ,not professional ones.

Terribly buggy. Won't save on close window! Won't save if Properties window has focus! Won't open designer by default when double-clicking file.

Typing $$ then "abc" ends up creating 3 replacements!

Creating new snippet and attempting to open results in "The operation could not be completed"

Hello to those who are interested in reading what my opinion about this snippet designer is.
I have been using this snippet designer since May and I find this tool invaluable.
Here at our office we do not write snippets every day, so having a visual snippet designer tool
really simplifies the task. Not only that it really saves you a lot of time when it comes to your production code
and I find it invaluable when it comes to enforcing consistencies on how we
add comments and beginning and ending tags for code changes. By having this consistency
it makes it really easy if we have to look up some specific code that was added or modified
for a specific version or date time frame.

This tool works as advertised and I would like to thank the author personally for such a wonderful tool

my hat off to you.

Will there be a VS 2013 version?

Very easy tool to create snippets.

Just had some weird behavior in VS 2012 Update 2: when modifying the snippet text inserting "$" characters, the DataGrid below started duplicating some items. Its not a big deal, though.

I installed version 1.4.2 on vs2010,
start vs2010 at blank environment, file->new->file->snippet designer->code snippet, vs2010 freezed.

Open a C++ project, file->new->file->snippet designer->code snippet,
open, "SnippetFile1.snippet" appears, Visual Basic, C#, XML, JavaScript, SQL and HTML in the Language list box, but there is no C++.

I've tried many times.

The 2010 version does not support C++ snippets since the VS feature was added in 2012.

Sorry you ran into problems. Could you file an issue on which details your environment setup and repro steps.

Very useful. Why this wouldn't come standard with VS is beyond me.

Nice tool, but for new users it may be best to use in conjunction with MSDN code snippets page
