hey guys. on my iPhone i have a ton of shortcuts set up. for example, i type "addy" and it generates my whole home address. Or, i type "tco" and my entire email pops up. is this something i can do on my MacBook Pro? I saw the shortcut section in settings, but its different shortcuts, like command + C for copy or shortcuts to open an app or start something ...but nothing to do like it does on my phone. Is there a way to do this or do i need to download additional software?

I type my email in a ton on my mac so typing "tco" and it popping up is what i am wanting.

To the best of my knowledge we still only have an Edit button, no Delete button.
