How to Prepend Date/Time to text?

Postby mscottveach » Sun May 21, 2017 3:38 pm

I use Append Text a lot to take short "what am I doing right now" notes. I would like to somehow
set LB up to automatically prepend or append the date/time to those notes.

I know I can do it manually by getting the snippet first but is there a way to have it happen
automatically every time?

Not automatically, but I would simply set up a shortcut in the snippet expander of your choice.

For example in Typinator make an abbreviation ;dt with this content: {YYYY}-{MM}-{DD}T{h024}:{m}:{s}
