Alt+N with Templater, or in file explorer, click “New note from template”.
Hotkeys for templates also has the feature of auto-creating a templated note on a per-folder-basis.
Both are community plugins that need to be installed and set up.
Thanks! I have Templater installed though and neither ALT + N seems to work nor can I find a New note from template button. I will try Hotkeys for templates as well
With Templater, you need a Template folder location and some templates stored in that folder. You can check the “Hotkeys” setting (by searching for “templater”) and verify that the hotkey for
Templater: Create new note from template is actually Alt+N on your installation.
Thanks for this - though oddly there is no ‘Templater: Create new note from template’ option - under Hotkeys or the further add on (Hotkeys for Template)
Ah apologies - just realised I have got mixed up with the Templates and Templater plugin options. Sure I will be able to sort it now - thanks again for your help
Sorry to comment again. Realised my problem before was that the Templater app hadn’t been updated.
My issue now is that when I use alt + N to create a new note, I then have to click the correct template (I only have one). Perhaps too much of an ask - but is there no hot-key / shortcut to just create new, with the template in one click or shortcut? Given that I create a new note every few mins with the same template, this would be very useful.
I think this helps GitHub - Vinzent03/obsidian-hotkeys-for-templates
