Creating new entries

When you open Diarly on Mac and on iPad, a new entry will be created for you automatically. This allows you to simply open the app and start typing.

If you want to add an entry to a different day, you can use the calendar . When you select an empty day, a new entry is created.

You can use the edit button in the list view to create a new entry for today, or use the shortcut ⌘N. This will create new entry with the daily prompt — or, if an entry for the day already exists, it will insert a time separator.

You can also use ⌘⇧N to insert your daily prompt in any opened entry.
