Inserting date/time

You can insert a date/time field into your text, stamped with current date/time information, by using Information>Date or Time… from the Insert menu. By default, the date/time field won’t update itself automatically when the publication is saved or loaded. However, you can turn auto-updating on if necessary.

To insert a date/time field:

  1. Select the Pointer Tool and click in the text for an insertion point.

  2. Choose Information from the Insert menu, then select Date or Time… from the submenu. Select a date/time format.

  3. To switch on auto-updating of date and time on save/load, check Update Automatically.

To replace the information in a date/time field:

  • Select the existing date/time field and choose Information>Date or Time… from the Insert menu.
