The context: I have TBX file which I use for course planning. I have a container in which each adornment represents a class date and there are notes on that adornment for various resources used in that class (assignments, readings, slides). I set EndDate in the adornment to the date of the class. I have an OnAdd action which sets the EndDate of each note added to match.
I should have thought ahead to when I am re-using this approach for a new year. The enddates change for the new semester but they don’t propagate to the notes on the adornment since the OnAdd doesn’t fire.
I can drag the notes off and on again but there are a lot of them and a dense array of adornments so it is a bit clunky to do so.
I saw an intriguing reference in atbref to the adornment designator now working outside of an OnAdd action. I tried setting $EndDate = $EndDate(adornment) in a stamp but when I applied it to a note that is clearly on an adornment the $EndDate got set to never.
Wanted to check if this should be working (so I can look into what I might have done wrong).
May need to move to a different approach, although the visual of the current system works well.
Thanks for any advice!
