The feature is also available in, amongst other things, my default clipboard enhancer, ArsClip; make it one of the permanent clips. How/where can you use this date/time feature? I can't find it...
Bring up the clip menu with your hotkey (I use Shift+Control+Z). Find All items
, which will probably be near the bottom as in the first image, and click it. Click on Edit permanent items
. You're probably going to be in the Default group of permanent clips. Click New
. On the next screen, see second screenshot, make sure you click Use Keystrokes / Commands
. That gives you the "keyboard" with the list of special keys. Click DATE
and you will find the date entered in US format. I can't see if Joe says anything about the date formats anywhere, but I found you can alter them, so that e.g. [DATE="yyyy-mm-dd"]
(on some ArsClip screens it will show up as [KEYS][DATE="yyyy-mm-dd"])gets you ISO date instead. After that, you should see your date clip appear in your popup clip menu, though if you have more than one group of permanent clips, you may have to change the group. New clip "Date" shown in third screenshot.
In another thread, superboyac remarked that ArsClip's configuration was a mess. Good though it is, I'm inclined agree. You might expect this bit of configuration to appear on the Configuration screens, rather than get to it via the popup menu.
