    I use CherryTree extensively for my notes across many topics.
    However the number of nodes is getting out of control and I would like to be able to go back in time sequence through the nodes I have edited. e.g. which nodes did I modify in last two weeks?

    The search feature can search for a pattern with variable
    Node created after
    Node created before
    Node modified after
    Node modified before

    But what if I do not know what pattern to use?
    I see that there is a regex option for search and I do get results by using this pattern ..


    I simply want a log of nodes accessed by date/time.

    If this log cannot be obtained from existing node search (e.g. by regex pattern), where can this logging method be added to the source code?


    After posting my requirement I found this thread …


    which raises the same issue. However I get many hits and it would be easier if the search results could be dumped and the results parsed.


    I have found an alternative route. I see that I can parse the *.ctd (xml) file to look at node attributes such as node timestamp created and accessed. I will write a python script to parse the xml file. But it would still be helpful to know where to dump node timestamps from the internal code in CherryTree.
