Hi @zzm88,

Are you willing to share the contents of one of the snippet files?

hi @ethancrawford, here is the snippets I clone from github

Interesting, not sure why it wouldn’t work. I’ve downloaded the above snippets, opened Sonic Pi, run the code, see the above loading comments in the log, and when I type one of the snippet keys (eg bg1) and press tab, the correct snippet loads :man_shrugging:
What version of Sonic Pi, and of Windows are you running?

wow, you are right! since nothing shows when I type in the keywords, I didn’t know I have to press “TAB”…now it works like a charm, THANKS!


You’re welcome, glad it’s working :smile:
