Sublime snippet recognized in Command pallette, but can't trigger it in a file


I have the below snippet. When I type “snip lib” in the command palette, I see it listed as “Snippet: ActivistMMT libsyn footer.” But I’m not seeing it when typing “Activist” or “libsyn” in either a text or html file.

There’s currently no scope. It also does not work when I uncomment the scope line (which is as I expect).

What am I missing? Thanks.

	<!-- Optional: Set a tabTrigger to define how to trigger the snippet -->
	<tabTrigger>Activist #MMT Libsyn footer</tabTrigger>
	<!-- Optional: Set a scope to limit where the snippet will trigger -->
	<!-- <scope>text.html</scope> -->
	<!-- <description>Blank html page</description> -->


In case of snippets, I believe, the description is what you can use to filter it in the command palette. The tabTrigger is what appears on the extreme right side in a small font size (ST does not take that into account for it’s fuzzy matching)



Pffft. It seems I just needed to restart Sublime. Grumble grumble. I didn’t change a thing.
