When working in org-mode, I usually emphasize some key words. For example, I usually write Python, and when I do, I want org-mode to use boldface automatically:

python => *python*

How do I set it up to make these changes automatic?


You probably want to look at abbrev-mode. Here's a tutorial.

Basically, with abbrev-mode, you follow this procedure:

  1. Turn on abbrev-mode
  2. When you type a word the way you want it to appear, you then define an abbreviation for whatever you want emacs to recognize and auto-expand
  3. type away
