Is it possible to have a front matter template inserted automatically at file creation time ? For example, each time I create a new note the following templater template should be inserted:
creation date: <% tp.file.creation_date() %>
modification date: <% tp.file.last_modified_date("dddd Do MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss") %>
without having to insert it manually by pressing a keyboard shortcut?
In Settings → Files and Links you tell Obsidian where to create new notes.
In Settings → Templater → Folder Templates there is an option to tell Templater which template should be used when a note is created in a specific folder.
Just enter the template settings you want for default notes or for notes in specific folders.
Thanks for the reply! I think one first has to switch on “Trigger Templater on new file creation” :
The settings section with “Folder templates” will not be visisble unless the first option is switched on After enabling that switch I now get it:
That was what confused me…
Good to hear you have it working.
And you are absolutely right: my answer wasn’t comprehensive, and I apologise for that.
