I have installed yasnippet, and confirmed that the minor mode is active, but I can't seem to trigger expansions.

This is in my init.el file:

(add-to-list 'load-path
(require 'yasnippet)
(yas-global-mode 1)

(setq yas-snippet-dirs
      '("~/.emacs.d/snippets"                 ;; personal snippets

When I edit an org-mode file, for instance, and type img then TAB, nothing happens. I can't get any snippets to expand. Am I missing something?

  • Did you define any snippets (see here)?. Also I guess the yasnippet-snippets.el should not be in the yas-snippet-dirs list Dec 14 '20 at 11:35
