I have a Journalling database in which I create a rich test document for each day with the date format YYYY/MM/DD and was wondering/hoping that there was a way when adding the document to have it automatically have the date inserted as the title?
I can not think of any way of doing this and would be pleasantly surprised if it were possible but you never know and I live in hope that one of the geniuses here will know how to do it.
Absolutely possible - and though I haven’t been journaling as much as I used to, I have a Template just for this.
The name of my template is thoughts_%shortDate%. This yields a file named thoughts_06-25-2016.
The format is determined by your System Preferences > Language & Region > Date settings.
These placeholders are covered in the DEVONthink Pro Office manual on p.144
Note: It is never advisable to use forward slashes in filenames. Stick to hyphens or underscores for UNIX friendliness.
Ah I see now where I have been going wrong and as usual it is so simple when made obvious! Thanks for your help and patience with this silly old buffer!
