When a document is split into various new documents, these new documents maintain the creation date of the original document. I must confess that I don’t understand why. Wouldn’t it be more logical to give them their own ‘day of birth’?
I would actually disagree with that, Timotheus. It seems to me that if I’m going to be looking at creation/modification dates, what I want to know is when I wrote something, not when a certain file was created. We all know that Scriv has lovely and robust text file splicing abilities, but I think most of the time what we’re really interested is the life of the text in the scrivenings, not the scrivenings themselvesâ€”which are built, it seems to me, to be as fluid and ephemeral as they need to be.
Frankly, this was an oversight on my part… I thinkt that the creation date really should match the date the individual document is created…
Thanks for pointing this out,
All the best,
