So I'm looking for the best solution to stock and organize code snippets - I have Cintanotes and EtherVane Echo and other odd and ends but they are not exactly what I'm looking for, though of course they are excellent in what they do.

It has to be something where I can just click on a snippet and it's copied to the system clipboard and where the snippets can be moved around between folders and so on ...

Any suggestions please ?

I use snip-it pro, and have really been satisfied with it.  One of the biggest selling points to me is the integration with snipplr, but it's good enough on its own.

Would any of the note-taker apps discussed lately, fit your request? There have been several in this forum in the last month(s).

If you have a blog or website, just post a review or mention Snip-It Pro, linking to http://www.snipitpro.com/ and we will send you a free license key. Just send an e-mail to info@snipitpro.com letting us know where the review or comment is. Help us spread the word.

I'd say try it, see if you like it, and if you do, post a mini-review (or a review on your site).

Another option is Acetext from the Editpad guy, whose stuff I like very much.
http://www.acetext.com/

Although it doesn't seem to be as feature rich as snipit for coding clips specifically, but more or less the same idea.  The question for me between the two is which fits better in your clipboard/snip saving workflow.  I love how acetext just keeps a simple list of everything that's been dumped in your clipboard.  But it also has some nice coding features, like setting up input variables in a block of code.  But snipit looks like it might be more powerful on that front.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys which I am checking out - but it does seem strange that there is no dedicated app for this usage.

I love how acetext just keeps a simple list of everything that's been dumped in your clipboard.
But isn't that true of all clipboard enhancers?  Which begs the question, what are the special requirements of a code snippet program over and above regular clipboard enhancers?

For me, it's integration with the IDE past simple C&P, i.e. variable substitution, the ability to categorize, and the ability to highlight.

I use a combination of snip-it pro (mentioned above) and coderush.  I didn't mention code rush before, because its quite expensive, and there were already complaints of the price of snip-it pro (:))  But adding either CodeRush or ReSharper increases productivity so much once you get used to using it and get it set up, that IMO it's well worth the price...

Should have known I'd get a coder answer that I wouldn't understand  :-[  Is the variable substitution like that in mouser's FLM, only able to pick variables up from the editor in the IDE?

I don't know.  I've never used FLM.  Let's call them fields.  The template is put in, and fields within the template can be navigated and changed.

That's one of the programs in the other article, is it not?
