callout properties date format

Hello all!

 

I need a little bit of information.

 

In the callout properties box, there is a callout text "%{Created/@MM/dd/yy}"

 

Is there a way that we can change the format to retrieve today's date?

 

Thank  you my friends!

%{Modified} will show the date the file was last saved.

I don't believe so, but if you want a date that updates when you open it, you should be able to use:  %{Accessed}

That should update anytime someone opens the file.

 

There is also:  %{Modified}

This will update whenever the file is saved.

 

If you are simply looking for a static date to be generated automatically and don't wish it to change at anytime after that, then I'm afraid you will just need to type it in.

I tried that one and it gave me the date for yedsterday.

 

Thank you for the information though.  Gonna put that one in my notebook for later use.

 

Got tired of updating all of the dates everytime on every single drawing.

 

Im using this for a more automated response to help take care

Is there kinda like a code book or some information that I can use that would be able to help be modify a draft ticket.  I also want to see if I can place the material properties on a draft sheet as well.

@Lex-luthor,

 

Depending on how you want to handle the content, or rather, what content you want displayed, in certain instances, will change what is best suited......I have a few saved configurations, for different conditions [part vs. assemblies, etc]

*Saved Settings: make the callout how you want it, then give it a name & Save....done!

 

If you go into the "Property Text" area [indicated in the image] there are options, and they vary, depending on the drop down chosen......have a browse through and you see what is available, which is also dependant on the available model[s].
