I’m experimenting with templates, which are new to me, and I tried putting in the placeholder %recordCreationYear% but I notice that it does not actually result in the creation year being put in the new file that is created by the template. The placeholder remains “as it was”. I assume that this is because the file is created before DEVONthink can “know” what the creation date is, therefore the information is not available. Or have I missed something very obvious?
What purpose is served by the record-specific placeholders? Are they intended for use in scripts? I’m not sure I’ve seen an explanation in the documentation, but it is extensive, so I’ve probably just missed it.
