Keyboard Shortcut for Note Info

Recommended Posts

Por favor

I use this all the time in the Mac client to apply tags and update the dates.

I was surprised to find that Note Info doesn't have a shortcut.  As far as I can tell, there's no way via keyboard to update the dates.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

There is no built-in shortcut for this.  However, you can use CMD-SHIFT-I to open the Note Info panel, and tab to the dates.

If you want to completely automate this, you can use AppleScript.
Here is an AppleScript to set the creation date from a selection, but you could easily modify it to prompt you for the date.
EN Set Note Creation Date from Selection 

I use FastScripts to assign shortcut keys to scripts
