[MacOS] Enable Text Replacement

MacOS allows for a very handy feature that replaces snippet of typed text with another text. A build-in, poor man’s KeyboardMaestro/TextExpander. Some applications allow for Text replacement, some don’t.

Enabling text replacement in Obsidian would allow users to use the templates/autocorrects they have already created and encourages more templates to be built. This makes a quick workflow accessible to people without those pricey, full-fledged applications.

Edit: Espanso seems like a free, open-source bridge for now until Text Replacement is enabled.


This could possible be an Electron limitation, similar to missing Services where Visual Studio Code had to do a lot of extra work to get those in.
