Dear Kate developers

I wrote an own markup file(see attachment) and used this  the last years
with Kate 17.12.3 and Ubuntu 18.04 successfully.

The file is saved under:

Now I installed Kate 19.12.3 (snap package) and recognized that Kate
can't find the markup anymore :-(.
It tried to get it working, but finally I gave up and went back to Kate
Where should I put personal markup file instead under 19.12.3 ?

Thanks for your help!


$ snap list | grep kate
kate                             19.12.3                     60

$ dpkg -l | grep kate
