After you create or add a new snippet to your project, you can insert it into any of your topics. Later, if you decide that a different snippet is a better fit for the topic, you can select a new snippet to replace it. When you replace a snippet, it only affects the instance that you selected.

If you want to add one of your pinned—or favorite—snippets to the project, you can select a snippet from the Pinned Snippets group. You also can click to find and select a snippet file outside of the project.
