I name a lot of files in chronological order in the format YYYY-MM-DD. I think your macro suggestion is great! It would fit perfectly for me if use “2018-04-“. Then, I only need to type the date on the end, and I would only need to update the Macro once each month.
Perhaps there is a way for a future software release that has the TextBlade app communicate the current date to the TextBlade so that the current date could be inserted thru some shortcut on the keyboard. Perhaps in several default layouts. Just something that would make the TextBlade even more convenient.
Still, this macro is a great way to accomplish almost the same thing! Thanks!
