Is it possible to create re-usable text snippets in OneNote 2010?

I often find myself writing the same text. Being able to bind the insertion of configurable text to a key combination would be very useful.

Is this possible or is there an Addin that can do this?

If you don't insist on doing this via an addin (why would you?), using AutoHotkey hotstrings solves the general problem.

This does indeed solve the problem, thank you. It's a bit tricky if I want to do formatting etc but is possible at least. Thanks. – ChrisB Dec 14 '12 at 11:22 provides an idea. But the text snippets would have to be "bound" to a tiny piece of typed text rather than to hotkeys.

Go to File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options. Place the "shortcut" in the Replace: box and the snippet in the With: box.
