Is there a way to change date/time format?

Hey guys;
I’m using Grammarly premium with Scrivener 3.
Grammarly is constantly flagging the date & time for punctuation when I use the Win+Alt+D keys to insert date and time.

Grammarly has underlined 2024 because correct punctuation would be to place a comma after 2024.

If there isn’t a way to do it from Scrivener’s preferences, I am OK with working with the registry or any scripting code.

Thanks for your help

As you can see, I added a few symbols. You can make the date in any format you want. Using periods, commas, smurfs, anything you want.

Otherwise, it is handled by the OS.


Interesting. The International Standards Organisation in its description of ISO 8601 Date and time format — that is the unabiguous format of YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.mmm — uses the full written example of " September 27, 2022 at 6 p.m. " Grammarly is clearly wrong.
