This FAQ is for the Mac OS Classic version of Znippetizer.

For Znippetizer-X, download the pdf documentation.

What is Znippetizer?
Znippetizer is a small tool, to help programmers first, but also writers, scientists and other people who need to quickly sort and categorize things.

The small Znippetizer window on your screen.


Documentation is found here.

How does it work?
Znippetizer has a small global floating window (with a Z in it), where you can drag any text. Any items dragged here are stored in a database, and grouped. All new items are stored in the currently selected Snippetgroup, and can then later on be moved to any other group.

By clicking on the "Z", the Znippetizer windows zooms, and you get full access to the groups and lists of items, and you can drag any item from the list to any other application that can recieve a text drag. You can zoom any snippet and select parts from it, copy from it. You can drag text files to the Znippetizer window, and also paste new snippets into it. Youb can also edit the znippet right inside the closeup window.

The large Snippets manager window.

The find window.

What it doesn't do.
It doesn't honor styles. All text is treated as text, not styled text.
It doesn't handle graphics or any other kind of dragged items.

Limitations in a non registered version.
The number of snippets are limited to 50.
You can only create 5 new groups.
Importing is disabled, so is searching.
Creating new Znippets manually is disabled.
Importing znippets from a textfile is disabled.
Exporting to textfile is disabled.
Find is crippled.

My Znippetizer crashes all the time, why?
If you are upgrading from version 1.0.3 or earlier.
In order to upgrade from a previous version of Znippetizer, follow these simple steps:

(1) Rename your Znippets.db -> Znippets.db.old
(2) Launch the new version of Znippetizer.
(3) Do "Import...", select the databasefile Znippets.db.old
(4) Done, you are now running with your old data.

How do I close the Znippetser "big" window?

Just click on the yellow word saying Znippetiser in the top of the large window.
Its the "same" text as in the small window, where only the Z is visible (and I though it was intuitive.)
