I sometimes take notes of conversations in Drafts, which involves a lot of abbreviations. Some are pretty consistent (“kinda” for “kind of”, “sorta” for “sort of”) but others aren’t (“chg” could be “change” or “charge” depending on context, for example). I probably have dozens if not a couple hundred of these that I’ve gotten accustomed to using over years of taking notes by hand and on my computer.
I’d like to build a custom dictionary of abbreviations, and have an action that will go through a draft and offer to change matches that it finds. Critically, I don’t want the changes to be automatic, because a given abbreviation could be used for different words in different contexts.
Does anyone have suggestions for existing actions or groups of actions, or other approaches, that would help me put something like this together?
I could also move the text to another plain-text or markdown app if that helps (I already use nvUltra, Multimarkdown Composer, The Archive, BBEdit and SublimeText for various kinds of work) Other tools I have and use fairly regularly: Python, Hammerspoon, Keyboard Maestro, TextExpander.
