It would be extremely useful to be able to [optionally ....from menu / keyboard command / by default] enter the current date/time into a new note on creation, in format of [say] dd mmm yyyy / hh:mm.

This would be extremely useful when using Scapple for programming notes, intended features in a new program or bug 'squashing'.

Just a thought after a few minutes use of the beta.

On my system there's a Service for Short Date and Time. It's not turned on by default, but you can enable it in System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services in the normal way.

The default shortcut cmd-_ doesn't work for some reason, but you can choose another shortcut, and that does work for me.

+1 for TextExpander. One of the most useful things on my Mac.

TypeIt4Me plays nicely with both Scapple and Scrivener. Comes in at a lower price point than its main competitor too. Always a bonus. :)
