I’ve created a number of prototypes. Suppose I create a prototype named “proto:Test” and then I create a note named “Test Results.” Sometimes when I click the dropdown list to assign “proto:Test” to “Test Results,” a new prototype named “Test Results” is created and applied to “Test Results.” In addition, when I click on the dropdown list, this new prototype, “Test Results” is among the listed prototypes.
This doesn’t always happen so I don’t know how to replicate it. I have noticed though that it happens more frequently if I attempt to assign a prototype to multiple notes at the same time. Tinderbox chooses the name of one of the selected notes, creates a prototype using that name, and assigns that new prototype to all the selected notes.
Two things. I would like to prevent this behavior from happening and I would also like to remove these extraneous prototypes from my list of prototypes.
Incidentally, when I look at the IsPrototype attribute for “Test Results,” it is not checked. Since it is not checked, does that not mean that Tinderbox doesn’t recognize it as a prototype? If so, why is it still listed in the dropdown list of prototypes?
If it matters, I’m using High Sierra - Version 10.13.2.
