Dear TinderBox community,
I’ve been playing with TBX for a year (mainly academic writing using maps and outlines). Want now to automate some stuff.
My goal is simply to put research notes onto adornments (one adornment per author) and that each note inherits its adornment’s Title (so, gets its author).
I’ve managed to create an OnAdd that automatically does that for my new notes (works fine), but I also want to create a stamp for already-made notes.
I’ve created a note prototype with a $MyAuthor variable and I want this variable automatically populated with the adornment’s title: its action is “$MyAuthor=$Name(adornment)” —without quotes— (cannot paste screen dump, but I guess my post is pretty clear?). I’ve tried with “parent” instead of “adornment” without success… (also tried to right-click “evaluate” the variable).
What I’m doing wrong?
best and thanks!
