Shared snippets and CTL-SPACE

I’m using TOAD for SQLServer V6.6.

When I first started using the program, I created local snippets. I always included a “shortcut” for each snippet. In the query edit window, I could type in the shortcut text then press CTL-SPACE to expand the shortcut. That worked really well. I then decided to share my snippets so I set up a “shared snippets folder” and moved all of my snippets there. Now when I enter the short cut text and press CTL-SPACE I get a prompt that asks me to “Insert Snippet:” and I have to use the mouse to select the directory and snippet. It is not nearly as nice as CTL-SPACE. How can use “short cutes” with CTL-SPACE with shared snippets?


Sorry for your inconvenience. I create TSS-1062 for this and we will keep update.

Best Regards,


This is still broken in Is there any hope this will ever get fixed?


Many apologies for the delay in resolving this issue.

We have had a number of platform support requirements to implement (SSMS 2016, TFS 2015) as well as a number of priority enhancements so unfortunately this won’t get fixed in in our next (6.8) release. I will endeavour to ensure this is fixed in the release following.
