[Qt-creator] Snippets in textfiles not working

Hi again,

well, the problem is that triggering the auto completion is not available at all inside pure text documents. The 'Text' snippets are available in all documents where the auto completion works, 'C++' inside cpp-related documents and 'QML' for qml-related documents.

So, sorry again - this won't work with a current Qt Creator.

Maybe you should just create a suggestion at https://bugreports.qt-project.org

Kind regards,

It is defined for text-files and not for c++-files, but it is only
availabe in c++-files - strange :-((
