(Archived) Inserting frequently used text


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to replace my current unnamed application with Evernote, but one feature eludes me. I want to insert the date and time, perhaps in a formatted manner. For example, in another application, I hit Alt-1 and it inserts the below string: ************************* Apr 02, 2013 @ 07:19:55 ************************* This makes it super easy to see each entry as I add it in. Each day gets its own note and there are usually 10-20 entries per day. Is there a way to handle this in Evernote? I know I can insert the current date/time with Ctrl-; but it doesn't allow for an adornments. What I'm looking for, even if it's via add-on, is a method for pasting commonly used pieces of text, if possible with arbitrary text in it such as the date above. To extend that desire further, it would be nice if I could optionally make it bolded as well.
