Instructables Abbreviation Answered

I get pretty sick of typing instructables all the time. It's a long word. So I think we need some sort of abbreviation.

. Most ppl should be able to figure it out from the context, so use what you like. If you're trying to come up with an official abbrev, I vote for I'bles. Like mumbling "eye balls."

Ibls? It's an acronym with other meanings, so maybe not a good idea. I did have use of a terminal client which had customisable function buttons. You could configure it to paste lines of text into the application running in the terminal window. What you might be able to find (on the Internet) is something similar, which will allow you to paste customised text like the standard CTRL-V? L

. Those are often called macros, scripts, or hotkeys. If someone wants to go that route, there should be a plethora of free apps available. Just those keywords.
