I like to do things fast and without too many steps and I'm constantly taking notes. I don't always have my Notes app open so when I don't and I want to create a new note, I would like to just use a shortcut to show me a text field where I can type in the text, hit Send and it automatically sends that note to the Notes app, as a new note inside the default "Notes" folder.
I still haven't done my research when it comes to the named clipboards, so I don't know how they work.
I found this other macro that can be, at least, a little help in case my request for the Notes app isn't possible at all:
With some modifications, it can be better than opening the Notes app and all that. The only thing is that I then have to copy the notes manually, but at least I can do that when the time comes, instead of doing it when I'm having the idea for the note
No no. I’m saying that it isn’t possible to create a new note without opening the application as part of the macro. If you want to create a new note in the background, you’ll need someone more experienced than I am to try writing directly to the notes folder.
Not a problem per se. I just like to only have the apps open if I'm using them. It's an OCD thing, I guess...
But even if that wasn't an issue, if I'm working on a certain app and I want to just register an idea, I don't want to leave that app, go to Notes, click the Notes folder, create new Note, type in, go back to the original app.
I just want to hit the shortcut > type > click OK to save and close the window. Back to work!
If this is not possible at all, then I will stick to that macro I shared:
The only thing that's bothering me a little bit is the one-line text field. Do you think there's a way to have a multiple line text area?
