An Adobe InDesign Snippet is a file that can hold various page elements in position, ready to drop into another document. There are three ways of creating Snippets:

1. Select the objects you wish to place in a Snippet and drag them to your desktop.

2. Select the objects from the Structure View and drag them to your desktop.

3. Select the objects and File > Export as an InDesign Snippet.

To place a Snippet, you can do File > Place or drag the snippet from your desktop into your document.

To make sure your Snippet positions itself exactly as was in its original document, go to Preferences > File Handling and choose Position at Original Location. If you need to override this then, hold alt/option when you click to place the Snippet.
