Saving snippets

In creating our newsletter, we have done it completely from scratch. So, it's taken a long time but next month, it's going to take half as long and the month after that half as long again. With every repeat newsletter, it's going to take as less time because every time we are going to be repurposing as much content as we possibly can. Now, we have been ensuring that we can automate things as much as possible by our consistent use of Paragraph Styles, Character Styles, and Object Styles. And those are going to remain in our template document. But we can also use Snippets, which are snatched pieces of our layout that we want to reuse perhaps in a slightly different location in a slightly different way. But that we don't want to have to recreate from scratch.

To what extent you use Snippets, and you could also use an alternative approach of library items. I'll just show you Snippets because they have a slight benefit over library items allowing us a bit more flexibility...
