Custom date
« on: February 10, 2014, 07:42:53 PM »
What I am looking for is the ability to add the option of date in the future. Either by the hour or by days.

I do many pasting of basic information and this program can help but in playing with it I notice that while there is a fine degree of being able to customize the date there seems to be no way to add future dates to it.

I would like to be able to add in the custom date something along the lines of:

%A, %B %d, %Y (%I:%M%p)
Monday, February 10, 2014 (08:32PM)

Possible adjustments:
%A, %B %d+3, %Y (%I:%M%p)
Thursday, February 13, 2014 (08:32PM)

As you can see if I was able to add +3 to the date it would change the rest of the information.

It would also be nice to have an option of adding a countdown or count up option to something.

Bob you have till the agreed upon due date Thursday, March 30, 2014 (47 days) to get the project completed.

This is a good idea.. The only hesitation I have is that The Form Letter Machine would really benefit from a rewrite to a more flexible tool.
