Sharing Snippets

Snippets are stored in the Jet Reports Snippets folder located in your My Documents directory. This location can be changed in the Application Settings. Each snippet is stored in a *.snippet file. To share snippets, copy the snippet files from one user's snippet directory to another's. Close and open the Snippets window and the newly added snippets will become available.
