External Snippets Tools don't work


i cannot get external snippets tools to work with phpStorm 3 on Mac. I know the tracker discussion about it and i tried the things mentioned there.

But i have no idea.properties file on the entire HDD. I have created one in the bin directory and added the line idea.use.alt.clipboard.sync=true as mentioned in the tracker. But it still does not work. I have tested with TypeIt4Me and CodeBox.

It seems that the external snippet is recognized (the shortcut string is removed) but the content of the snippet does not appear. Needless to say, that it works in other applications...

Is there something i am missing?
