🏎 Snippets


You can now create short text snippets within Raycast. Great for jotting down ideas, notes, code, or just the shopping list πŸ˜ƒ. Colors can also be stored as snippets, great for designers 🎨. You can easily copy snippets to the clipboard or paste them directly into the active application.

You're going to love this! Everything you need to access quickly can be a Quicklink from now.

The best thing is that you can access it directly from within the root search.
