Permanent templates?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to permanently have a template available within a notebook? I created a template, put it within its own Template Notebook, then can copy it to a document one at a time. But I have several hundred entries to make to this notebook. I'd love a way to always have the template available without going to the other notebook and copying over and over again.

I have this scripted on my Mac (Applescript) documented here
To create a new note, I use Command-Option-N and get this selection box Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 1.28.20 PM.png

Selecting a template causes a new note to be created with the template.

You don't mention what platform, but on Windows you drag the template note to the desktop and an ENEX shortcut will be created.  Then whenever you double click the shortcut a new note will be created in your default notebook.  Then you can update as you like and move to whatever notebook.  Double click ten times and you will have 10 new notes.

I use this method for a phone call template that I created.  Double click and I have a note to modify in my Inbox.  Full disclosure, two monitor set up which makes it easier to have the shortcut visible.  FWIW.

Extending your method, it might be worthwhile to store the templates in a folder on the desktop

I do that for blank tables of different sizes, but I keep the Phone template on the desk top to keep it one double click away.
