Note Composer: Prompt to select a template and open new file

Use case or problem

It would be great if I could select the template I would like to extract the text to, rather than only having the option to use a single template.

Edit: It would also be great if the new note opened automatically upon extraction, next to the original note.

Proposed solution

  1. Highlight text to be extracted
  2. Execute extract current selection command
  3. Be prompted to select a template
  4. Select a template
  5. Open new note

Current workaround (optional)

Using Note Refactor to extract selected text to a blank note and then inserting a template.

Using Note Composer when I want to use the one template it allows me to preselect.

Edit: Just realized I could also temporarily change the preselected template, but doing so every time I need a different template could be onerous.

Not aware of any, but I did look.

I would love to see what you proposed implemented. It’s the exact case I’m looking for.
