Snippets Browser

Click the Snippets icon in the toolbar to reveal the Snippets Browser in the sidebar.

The list at the top shows folders with different categories of snippets. Drag any folder that contains FotoMagico snippet files to the list to permanently add this folder to the list. Optionally you can right-click on the list background to show a context menu and select the Add Folder… command. Remove the folder again by selecting Remove Folder from the context menu.

The snippets of the currently selected folder are displayed below the divider line. Drag the divider line up all the way to collapse the list of folders to a small popup menu. This maximizes the amount of vertical space available for the Snippets Browser. This is especially helpful on small notebook displays.

Select a snippet in the browser and drag it to the Storyboard or Stage to add it to your slideshow.

Many snippets contain placeholder layers. Switch to the Image Browser and drag your own images onto those placeholders.
