Learn about how to use and work with snippets in RoboHelp.

A snippet can be a para­graph of text, a piece of code, an object such as an image, or an entire topic. You can single-source a snippet and reuse it across multiple topics in a project. A snippet can also contain variables and conditional text tags. When you change the contents of a snippet, it's updated across all the topics that include it.

Use inline snippets within your text to create emphasis on essential keywords. You can select text within the paragraph and create a snippet of the selected portion or create it directly in the snippet editor. On usage, it can be inserted within any paragraph or text as an inline snippet.

You can organize your snippets in different categories for better view and ease of use while authoring. It's mandatory to add the snippet to a category. Snippets are added to the default category if a category isn't specified.

Create a snippet category

Open a project in RoboHelp and follow these steps to create a snippet category:

  1. In the Author toolbar, select Snippets. The Snippets panel opens.

  2. In the Snippets panel, select , and then select Category.

    A new category is added in the snippet panel.
