Insert current date


#1

I would like to be able to insert the current date (format set-able) as a text string in addition to being able to have the !date function. This would help in updating notes, and keeping a log of actions. If this is already possible, I’d be grateful to learn how to do it. Thank you.

If you use Chrome, there are plugins to help you do this. I’ve been playing with TextBlaze and it’s working well for me so far:

I appreciate the recommendation, but I use Dynalist on a Windows PC, MacBook, iPad as well as in my browser (Safari on my MacBook), and I really prefer not to have to have several different text expander apps, nor to have to remember different key strokes. This should be a simple addition to Dynalist, I would think. I hope it gets done some day.

TextExpander is cross platform now.

Textexpander doesn’t seem to have a browser extension. I have a Chromebook and so use TextBlazer, which works mostly except in Google Docs for some reason.

I would really prefer not to have to invest in another $40 annual subscription for a work-around of a basic feature that any app like Dynalist should have.

OneNote has shortcuts for current date and current time. I would like the same here. I note that ! doesn’t have a current time option.
