It wasn’t mentioned on any of the guides I’ve read, but wouldn’t it be great to add a group of default Subtrees under your entry? I’m glad you asked!
As an example of how to do it I created a template to add a book I’m going to read:
1) Create a template;
2) Edit the Name and Save To fields (I used ‘Add Book’ and ‘personal’);
3) Make the Headline for your entry (appropriately it is ‘Title’);
4) Add the Subtrees to place the entry in the correct location in the file (in this case Books);
5) Edit the Notes field with the default Subtrees you want similar to the following:
*** Author *** ISBN *** Current Page *** 0 *** Favorite Character *** Favorite Scene
(The stars add the Subtrees under the entry - your stars may vary - and the zero is the note attached to the ‘Current Page’ entry)
Save the template and you're done.
Now when I add a book I have all these empty entries to fill in without having to manually put them there. if you have default Notes for a particular Subtree you can add them between the starred lines as I did for how far I’ve read.
I've edited the post to clean it up - hopefully is approximately how you intended it to look. Thanks for adding this to the forum - looks very useful!
I've updated it as you've suggested. Thanks!
