Metadata For Compile Date/Time

With V2 I always manually added an approximate date/time for the compile of a version using the Abbreviated Title field.

Thus, my title page includes something like this:

I noticed a metadata field the sets the date format in the compile dialog, so I’m wondering if there’s a way to do this automatically in V3. If so, how do I add that field to the compiled document?


You can add a placeholder pretty much wherever you want: front matter, title page, body matter, header, footer, etc.

Look at Help > List of All Placeholders and use the date or time format that fits your needs.
