Dendron: Create Scratch Note


Create a scratch note.

Scratch notes are self contained notes that are meant to be used as scratch pads.


  • windows: ctrl+k s
  • mac: cmd+k s


When the command is triggered, a lookup bar will appear with the query prefilled as per the scratch configuration.

As a default, it will be pre-filled with scratch.{year}.{month}.{day}.{HHmmss} if you don't have any text selected in the note, or scratch.{year}.{month}.{day}.{HHmmss}.{selected text} if you do have any text selected.

The behavior is identical to creating a note using lookup with the scratch note modifier and selection2link modifier enabled.
