How to use "Insert template" Plugin?


I enabled “insert template” pluggin. But when I press the button, nothing happens. Any idea why?

I am using latest version of Obsidian. I am using Cybertron (appearance). And my system is Mac. (disclaimer: I don’t know coding and I am not a techie; just new to Obsidian).

Ideally, I would like to create metadata templates for various types of writing and I thought ‘insert template’ button will help me fetch the right template. Right?

I appreciate the help here.

You need to designate a folder for templates, and then your template files are just regular notes with optional tokens for date and time.


Thanks a lot Sam. This is working now. I didn’t know about the step in settings menu.
