QuickSnippets is a new plugin for Google Quick Search Box (QSB) that adds basic snippet management to the utility’s toolbox.
It is easy to use and quite clever.
First get the plugin from the developer’s Github site.
Copy the plugin file to your ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Quick Search Box/PlugIns/ directory, and restart QSB.
Then to add a snippet, all you need to do is activate QSB and type quicks and select the QuickSnippet Regist option:
Enter the trigger and the snippet itself into the dialog box:
I’ve found that cutting and pasting blocks of texts into the snippet box preserves the line breaks when they are activated later.
When you’ve entered all the snippet you want, dumping them into an email message or other document is easy.
Just activate QSB, and type the snippet’s trigger. The snippet appears in the list below:
Select it and hit Enter. All done!
Obviously it’s not TextExpander, but for a lot of people it might be all the snippet management you need.
QuickSnippets is freeware and comes with more copious instructions in English and Japanese.
