Roadmap and Browse Links for Templates
Apr 01st, 2009, 7:24pm
 
The roadmap is a helpful view for determining which notes use what prototypes.  Browse links is also useful for that purpose.  It would be helpful if the roadmap and browse links worked for templates.  Perhaps a link type of "template" would be a logical extension of the ability to make notes into templates.

Meanwhile, don't forget that an agent can easily find these things. Example queries:

  $Prototype="p_Article"
  HTMLExportTemplate="/TEMPLATES/basic/"
  HTMLExportTemplate="Macintosh HD:Users:mwra:TBX:Sample HTML templates:blog.html"

This works regardless of whether the templates are internal or external. A further advantage of the agent method is you get to see all users of that prototype or template. I presume you're selecting a prototype and looking at all the right-hand links from the prototype note to those inheriting via it? That couldn't work for all templates, only those that are template notes.

Mark, those are good tips.  My own workaround is to have an agent collect all notes with templates and export the results (Path, Prototype, HTMLExportTemplate) to a table in Numbers.  Query is:

HTMLDontExport==false&HTMLExportTemplate!=""
