Designer Notebook: keeping track of pattern files


When creating knitting and crochet patterns I go through many drafts before I get the final document. Personally, I can’t work just on the computer. I print out versions that I edit as I knit my samples. So, sometimes, it can get confusing which is the latest version.

So, while working on writing drafts of knitting or crochet patterns I add the following information into the document header:
1) automatic page numbering
2)the file and pathname (so I can remember where it’s saved),
and
3) the current date and time so I always know which is latest incarnation (don’t use the auto date and time-it will change every time you work on the document — not helpful).
