Hello Slawek,1 person found this helpful
you can find the user snippets on Windows in:
c:\documents and settings\<user>\Application Data\ SQL Developer
The file is called UserSnippets.xml
Thank you for help.
On my computer (Windows 7) this file exists in:
Solution for everyone who uses Dropbox and wants shared snippets between computers (Windows 7).
1. Copy "SQL Developer" folder from c:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\ to "Dropbox" folder.
2. Remove "SQL Developer" folder from c:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\ [*command: RD /S /Q "SQL Developer"*]
3. Create folder symlink "SQL Developer" -> to -> "SQL Developer" in Dropbox:
a) Go to c:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\
b) In cmd (+as administrator+): [*command: mklink /D "SQL Developer" "c:\Dropbox\SQL Developer"*]
c) Run SQL Developer.
4. Do the same on another computer.
Not only snippets are synchronized, connections, templates also.

This works. Thanks!
The only concern I have is whether SQL Developer is designed to handle network or cloud storage of these settings while SQL Developer is open from another location(s). Perhaps it is. It is seems that settings, e.g. a new database connection, don't become available at the other computer until exiting from SQL Developer on the computer where the change was made.
Yes, you'll be fine, mostly.
Files are generally written on application shutdown.
My only caveat, in version 4, passwords won't be transferable, so your connections will carry over but the passwords will not.
