This does not appear handle images properly in their various position settings. If the image is set to be "in-line" the image will be handled well. It will not execute is the the image is set to "wrap-text" or "text break" it doesn't work at all it would seem. Finally the add-on fails to pull the image in the "In-front" and "behind" text options.

Amazing once you figure out how to set it up. We couldn't really find any help docs, but figured out that you have to do two things: - Create a spreadsheet using their template to create your document "styles" for text options/settings you can use later as a drop-down menu when using the add-on. - Create a separate Google Doc for each "snippet". We organized these "snippets" into related folders for complex document building. We had a document automation platform that was stand-alone, and it took a lot of time for manual data entry (not easy to automate or integrate with ANYTHING without custom code), and found we only needed complex doc building scenarios for a few things; everything else could just be a Google Doc template on its own. This option does the same thing for us, and is directly integrated. This does need detailed directions/a wiki for support. Many people may not be able to figure out how to set it up, initially.

seems great but its poorly designed. I can't see any of the example documents anymore because it just vanished as soon as I starred my own snippets. Had great potential but feels like nobody cares about this extension now.

Awful - I just want to be able collect snippets from my document to reuse as I GO ALONG!!!!!!!!!!!!! This add on says "insert snippets" but there is no intuitive way to ADD your own snippets to the collection of the plugin - everything I clicked added some stupid image and graphic lines and giant header title - horrible. Its slow and the add on demands permission to send your information to 3rd party websites. UNINSTALLED IMMEDIATELY not worth it.

I've got a database of already created snippets. Firstly, they don't appear in the directory (I can't navigate the to folder that they are saved in) but when I search the name it appears. Secondly when I insert it gives me the following error and only inserts part of the snippet. "ScriptError: Service unavailable: Documents". When I used the add-on in 2019 it worked well. Wanted to implement it into our process line but can't as it's giving errors. I've tried getting hold of support but everything directs me to Ultradox with no assistance from them.

pro features didn't work after paying $100 to have them. Support was completely unresponsive.
