Read-Only on Import Prototype


(Michael Brown) #1

I use watch folders for Apple Notes to bring in brainstorming notes for my writing projects.

I don’t want to have to retype these notes or not have the ability to add to them once I’m in Tinderbox.

Is there a way to make the Imported notes not Read Only? Thanks.

Just set $ReadOnly for the note to false.

If you need to do this a lot, you could make ReadOnly a key attribute of the prototype Imported From Notes.

Or, you could change the prototype’s value of $ReadOnly from true to false.

Or, you could make a stamp.

I must have done something wrong before, because when I tried to set Read Only to False it wasn’t working, but I set up a stamp and now it works great. Thanks.
