is there a way to have a template when creating a new note like Sublimetext-zkn ? (other than using texteexpander)
Nope, there's no such feature at the moment. By the way, if you want to discuss template contents, there's a discussion you might be interested in: https://forum.zettelkasten.de/discussion/76/zettel-templates

thanks for the answer , and the Xref, Chirstian
Wanting to second it would be nice to have such an automated template built in to the software
Or is there a philosophical reason not to provide this?
We're not against this at all We got requests for this during the beta already, starting with multiple templates to bootstrap creation of different kinds of notes, but we never received actual examples of what people use. -- The best suggestion someone put somewhere rather recently was to have a file template with placeholders, much like auto-text/text expansion tools provide, and let users decide what to put in there. That's covered in the thread I linked to as well.
