Better Method of Naming files?
Currently, I have The Archive set to create a new note with a Zettel ID. Then I use a TextExpander snippet to create the title, which looks like this:
Workx - Meeting Notes - 2018-03-26 tags: # []
(note that TextExpander the positions the cursor after the #, but with the new KM macro, I may ditch that part)
A few questions about this workflow:
- I'm using TextExpander to generate the pseudo-Zettel ID in the snippet. It's usually right, but it can be off by a bit if I'm being slow with typing it in or when I create multiple new files in the same minute. Is there a better way to get the note's Zettel ID in the note itself?
- When I'm done, I usually add a level 1 header # to the first line (or type it first and then activate my snippet), and then I have to cut and paste the actual name (starting with Workx and ending with the date), hit ⌘R to rename, hit a key to deselect the Zettel ID and position the cursor, hit ⌘V and then finally hit Return to finalize.
It's kind of a long process. Is there a better way to name my notes?
