Creation date of documents

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 themselves—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,
Keith
