I'm basically a level 0 emacs/orgmode user, trying to get the hang of Emacs/Orgmode. Doing this like for the 5th time already, as most Emacs beginners obviously. I have this feeling I'll like and be happy with the Emacs world, but oh well it takes a lot of patience. So I'm trying to do things little by little.
So I'm trying to do something that seemingly should be quite doable but can't understand how to make it work. The idea is to reuse predefined text within a buffer.
I think that what I want is to define kind of "text variables" or "snippets" and reuse that in my text later on.
Let's say I'm writing some specification for my laptop. I'd like to something like define a term in buffer (don't pay attention to syntax, it's just my interpretation), let's say "Thinkpad T470p, black, with dedicated graphics card, XYZ".
So I'd define this term at the beginning of my buffer.
The term, presumably, would have a label/name (not sure if this is the correct term) and some value. Let's say, the value is as above and label is "MyThinkPad".
Then when writing text, I'd like to start writing "MyThinkPad" and that would auto-insert the previously predefined text "Thinkpad T470p, black, with dedicated graphics card, XYZ" at the cursor position.
AND what is most important - if I change value of this "variable" in the buffer , that should auto-update throughout the buffer.
I'm not sure what is the right direction to look. I have a feeling this has to do with some of these "#+NAME" or "#+LABEL", or citations, or local variables, or something of that sort.
After reading online resources and trying out various ideas, I'm stuck and turning to community help. Really looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks in advance!
