As you noticed, at startup Instant Text loads a bunch of glossaries:

The Instant Text glossary ecosystem has several types of glossaries, active in parallel, while you type:

The Pick, Snippet and Variable glossaries are repositories for pick lists, snippets and variables that can be referenced inside expansions.

At an abstract level, a glossary can be seen as a set of glossary entries which establish a link between a key and an expansion, and the semantic of the key depends on the glossary type:

Glossary Type Key
