Thank you for the screenshot. The warning is related to sharing text via Slack. If you are invoking the ‘Share to Slack’ from the editor without selecting any text, then you will be warned about the empty snippets.
Please recheck and let us know how it works for you.

Yes that was the Problem. On a Mac Option(Alt) key + 5 = ‘[‘. I have changed the Slack Sharing to Shift + Option + 5 and the ‘[‘ work very well.
Thanks a lotNovember 28, 2017 at 1:59 am #543989
I’ve checked on a Mac with OS X High Sierra and find that the Option-5 key combination produces the infinity symbol (“∞”). There seems to be no way to change this, so I’m confused about your last reply. Do you have a special keyboard, where the Option key mappings are different?
You can look at the various keyboard mappings by checking the “Show Input menu on menu bar” option in the Input Sources tab of the Keyboard preferences (in System Preferences), then click the Input Menu icon on the right hand side of the Mac’s menu bar. In the keyboard that’s shown, you can click an Option key and see what characters each key produces with the Option key held down. What do you see for the “5” key, when the Option key is held down?
The only other possibility I can think of is that Language and Region settings are affecting this in some way. Could you let us know what settings you have there and what version of OS X you are using? I’m glad you’ve found a way round this but we’d like to understand what was causing the original problem, as we might be able to address it in the product.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide in helping us track this down.November 30, 2017 at 9:49 am #544233
On my Mac (also with macOs High Sierra) the Option-5 key (ALT-5 Key) maps to the [ Char.
I use a German keyboard.
Please see my Attached Screenshot of key Bindings and Keyboard Mapping.

Thanks for that information. It makes the situation very clear. I’ve raised a bug to try to ensure this issue won’t happen in future.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for raising the issue.
