Special variable in snippets

Postby Matze on Sun Feb 06, 2022 10:58 pm

Hi all,
regarding this one:

What are your experiences regarding special variable snippets.

I guess but not sure, that brings a lot of confusing in our normal standard variable structure used in topics, capture images and snippets as well.

Or are this type of variable really needed? Have you some examples?

You'd use snippet variables when you want to change a variable's value in that individual snippet, and override the variable's value you've set in the variable file or the target.

So you can set the value of a variable in various places:
- Variable file: sets the default variable value.
- Target: sets the variable value for that target, and overrides the default value in the variable file.
- Snippet: sets the variable value for that instance of the snippet, and overrides the value in the target and/or variable file.

The same rules apply to using snippet conditions - they allow you to control conditions in that individual snippet.
