  • [TITLE <word-number>] • Word from the title (beginning with 1, optional)
  • [AUTHOR] • The full author field
  • [AUTHOR_NAME] • The author field value before the first <, this is normally used to seperate email addresses in mails from and to field.
  • [AUTHOR_EMAIL] • An email address in the author field, this may be empty

The time related fields require a time format string, which is explained below. E.g. [CREATED %Y-%m-%d] will add the note creation time like 2016-01-13.
