Time Variables

Select the Text tool from the Toolbox and place the insertion point where the time will be inserted. Choose Time from the Insert submenu in the Type menu. The Insert Time dialog box will appear. Choose the language from the Language pop-up menu to use for long time formats if different than the defined language for the text. Choose the prefered time style from the Format pop-up menu. If the time should change to reflect critical times in the documents creation, choose the critical event in the Update pop-up menu. Click Insert.

To customize a time variable: Choose Custom from the Format pop-up menu. Enter a time variable in the Custom text box. Refer to the table below for more information on formatting options. You do not need to include all parts of the time. Use a colon, space or any other character to separate them.

Note: One character following a backslash or text inside double quotation marks ("") will appear as is.
