[feature request] add seconds to auto title

I often found myself creating more than one file with the same name within a minute, so I created a TextExpander snippet that creates yyyymmddhhmmss for a unique ID. That’s become my standard. Obviously I can manually name new notes instead of using the auto name feature, but if possible, can we have an option to add seconds too?

If we wanted to get fancy, perhaps down the road there could be boxes for us to type personalized prefixes and suffixes to the yyyymm….


  • Yeah, customizing the ID scheme is on our list of things we'll discuss when the major problems are solved, so we're aware of this :)
