    Question - IDE Snippets file

    I have just discovered that you can add your own code snippets in which is great. I have quite a few I would like to add. My question is how do I get it to separate out into sub-sections so I don't have a monstrously long list I can't even see to the bottom of. Thanks in advance.

    Question - IDE [SOLVED but still an issue] GMS2 Blue-Screened my PC and is using 10 GB of RAM

    EDIT: My issue has been resolved, technically. However, there is almost definitely some form of memory leak, a huge one, involving tiles. While I'm placing tiles, RAM increases by about 20 MB per second. Every time I save the project after editing tiles, RAM increases by 200-300 MB. Every single...
