currently, adding new notes with a template is possible through workarounds as long as you don’t create the note by clicking on a link to it while it still doesn’t exist.
I am writing a recipe. One ingredient is [[pasta]]. There is no file called “pasta”. Currently, it’s not possible to have a template-filled file created, when I then click on [[pasta]].
my workaround to not forget my template YAML header is the following:
- I installed the Zettelkasten plugin
- I created a template with my YAML header
- I assigned that template as my Zettelkasten template
- I reassigned the “new note” hotkey to “create new zettelkasten note”
Hence, I don’t create default new notes, but I am actually using the Zettelkasten plugin and just repurposed it. Hope that helps.
(EDIT: I accidentally wrote filet instead of file in my example. I am hungry, apparently.)
