Share and Sync Snippets

Some of us can remember a time when it was a radical idea to imagine that an ordinary person could own a computer. Now, though, many people not only own one computer, but several, both stationary and mobile; for example, a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet, a phone, and maybe even a few others (your author blushingly admits to having a half dozen computers of various kinds around his home as well as a few other retired machines stashed in his Vault of Antiquity—they seem to reproduce like tribbles).

If you use multiple smart devices, and you employ TextExpander regularly on more than one of them, you might find it useful to share a master snippet collection among them. If so, read this chapter.
