Command to set property value by clicking word in a note

Use case or problem

When you want to be able to quickly set the value of a property to a word that you already have typed in an open note.

Proposed solution

Either a hotkey or a button would trigger the command for the property value you are editing. Once active, the next word you click on, regardless of note, would be defined.

Current workaround: Templater js.

@gino_m What would you say is the best way to go about learning Templater JavaScript. I had asked a similar question in the past in the context of Dataviewjs, and received some helpful resources here: Issuing creating dataviewJS table - #15 by smiggles

Just wondering what you would add to that. I remember you mentioning that you are not a programmer, if I recall correctly. But your solutions are quite impressive.

Thanks very much!


Only being a Buttinsky here because the other day I just created this.
