The customer Support staff doesn’t handle issues for Snapmarks, it’s still in Beta. If you want someone from the team to see it, report it on this thread:

That’s heartening to read! Thank you for that, bansai8creations!
I’ll try some logout/login/power cycle voodoo and see if that helps.
Are the snap marks too close together? I find that they work best with some separation.
@Jules - that’s correct! If you have any Snapmark questions or trouble, that thread is the best place to post.
