  2. Selecting the "New Snippet" submenu from the "File" menu;
  3. Pressing the "+" icon and then selecting the "New Snippet" submenu option, while having a category selected from the main categories list;
  4. Right-clicking on the main snippets list and then selecting the "New Snippet" submenu option, while having a category selected from the main categories list;
  5. Pressing the Insert keyboard key, while the focus is on the main snippets list;
  6. Dragging & dropping code/text selections from any IDE,  text editor or directly from websites, on top the main snippets list;
  7. Pressing the global keyboard combination CTRL+ALT+N, even if QSnipps is minimized (Windows OS only);
