I did search the forum here before creating this little macro.
Peter posted his text expansion macro yonks ago — but it's not searchable.
What this script does is automate the process of creating a insert text by pasting in KBM, as I use KBM itself to store small text snippet collections.
Here is the applescript - change the folder name to the group where you keep your text snippets.
