Snippets are a supplement to the audio, standard and personal comments in the Edword Add-in.
According to Wikipedia a snippet is defined as "a small piece of something." Only in this case. it can be almost anything and it doesn't have to be small! It is in essence a very sophisticaed clipboard.
Use Snippets to bypass the limited space offered in comment balloons. Snippets are inserted into the actual body of the document, either at the cursor position or directly at the end of the document (without you having scroll down and up.)
Use Snippets to insert longer explanations, an excerpt from a book, round off comments, rubrics, tables, pictures, etc ... you can literally turn "Almost anything into a snippet.
