Add Current Date and Filename Text Variables

Recommended Posts

How can we use that information in the document?

I would like to use a text box with some text variables in it, so it will update automatically when I change the file and save. Variable print date and filename is very handy.

I found that, if you change the filename of an existing file using the "Save As" command, the field is not updated. It still shows the original filename, even after closing the program and re-opening. By the way, it wasn't clear where you have to double click to enter the filename in the document. You have to double click on the word "Title", NOT on the filename itself.

In my Mac 10.14 system preferences I made my date like this: 2018.10.04, because I prefer. In Apub it is not possible to get the same output in the  date field. Is it possible to change this?

Can't get the dots, it uses dashes. image.png.a9f268e41fe8ca1a65164c113e41b5eb.png

Yes it would be nice to just get the info from the OS system preferences.
