I am using Ubuntu 13.10. I downloaded Autokey but just straight-off I can't get it to work. I am going to have to spend some time looking at the Help and understanding how it works.

I was thinking that the expansions need to be built using Zim so that formatting, links, etc can be a part of the expansion. Doing this through Autokey might be difficult, as it would be if we used a configuration file in a similar to "Insert symbol".


One option would be to have a special page containing the abbreviation/expansion pairs. Another would be to have a separate page for each expansion.

I am running Xubuntu and Autokey works great.

If you use Linux you could use AutoKey:

AutoKey is a desktop automation utility for Linux and X11. It allows you to manage collection of scripts and phrases, and assign abbreviations and hotkeys to these. This allows you to execute a script or insert text on demand in whatever program you are using.

Bill,

Afraid there is no such plugin available at the moment. If you have some
experience with Python you might give it a try to develop one. Have a
look at the "line sorter" and "insert symbol" plugins to get an idea of
the code you need to make it.

Regards,

Jaap

    Is there a plugin that allows me to insert standard text into a
page. There a number of words, phrases and blocks of text that I use frequently and I wish to be able to input them with a few keystrokes.

If you want an idea of what I mean, I wish to have something similar
    to the "Snippets Manager" available in GEdit.

    If there is not a plugin for this, can you give me a point in the
    code where I might be able to add this feature ?.
