Introducing snippets

Who has access?
- Grammarly Business account owners
- Grammarly Business contributors
- Grammarly Business users (personal snippets only)

Snippets are reusable phrases, sentences, and even whole paragraphs that you can easily insert into your text to save you time when you use the Grammarly browser extension.

How do I create a snippet?

There are two ways to create a snippet.

  1. Sign in to your Grammarly account and go to the Snippets page by clicking Snippets in the left-side panel and click Create Snippet. Snippets.gif
  2. Write a snippet of the text while using the Grammarly browser extension. Highlight the text and press Ctrl+S on Mac or Alt+S on Windows.Snippets_2.gif

Note: If you’re a Grammarly Business account owner or contributor, you can create personal snippets and snippets for the entire company to use. Company snippets can only be created from the Snippets page, by clicking Create Snippet or Import CSV in the top-right corner of the page. 

How do I use a snippet?

To use a snippet while typing in the Grammarly browser extension, press \ to open your snippets library. In this library, your snippets will be sorted by frequency of usage.

Use the up and down arrow keys to browse your snippets or continue typing to search for a snippet by name or keyword in the content. For example, if you type “\late”, you’ll pull up the snippet “I am running a few minutes late. My previous meeting is running over.” 

To insert the snippet into your text, click on the snippet or press Enter.Snippets_3.gif

How do I edit or delete a snippet?

You can edit and delete snippets from the Snippets page of your account. 

Find the snippet you’d like to modify and click on the pencil icon next to it to edit it or the trash can icon to delete it. If you don’t see these options, that means it’s a company snippet, and you don’t have permission to modify it.

If you’re an account owner or contributor, you can edit and delete both your own personal snippets and company snippets from the Snippets page. If you delete a company snippet, the rest of your company will no longer be able to use it.

How do I customize my keyboard shortcut?

To use a different keyboard shortcut to insert your snippets, log in to your Grammarly account, click Customize on the left-side panel, and click Features. Here's a direct link: https://account.grammarly.com/customize/products.

From there, you can assign a new keyboard shortcut. It’s a good idea to choose a character that you don’t normally use when typing.

You can also customize your keyboard shortcut when you type in the Grammarly browser extension. Press \  and click on the three dots. Then, choose Edit shortcut
