comment How is OptionsPattern[] defined? Can I replicate this?
Thanks for the answer. Why did you use pt and b and not pt_ and b_? I was under the impression that pt : ptrn would just specify a default value; is something else happening here?

I don't really want Options — specifying -> rules for each argument will be even messier than the current definition using named patterns like var_. I just want a way to decrease the number of times I have the whole argument list written out.

comment How can I create some shorthand notation for a custom control?
Thanks, this lead me to find InputAutoReplacements which was what I wanted. Do you have any idea why it selects a random field/object in the box instead of highlighting the first text field when the replacement happens?

This works great, thanks! But what is the purpose of the DynamicSetting and Evaluate? It seems that if I remove them, it works just the same way. Also, I would expect to need Dynamic[vars] instead of vars at the end...
