Placeholder "shorttime" for templates?


I am creating some memo templates (Markdown) and wish to name them uniquely, thus with date and time. Using %shortdate% or %month% etc. is fine, and for time there is the placeholder %time%.

Unfortunately, it separates units with “:” which I would like to avoid. Is there a way to extract either hours, minutes, seconds, or replace colons with another symbol like “-” or put hourMinuteSeconds without separator, in other words, something like %shorttime%?


There are placeholders for %hours%, %minutes% and %seconds% too.

Thanks for the quick help.

Where can I find them? I looked up the Manual for “placeholders” and “templates” but could not find these specific placeholders.

You can e.g. insert them via the Insert Placeholder submenu of the contextual menu.

That helps, thank you!

I did not get it, since I prepared my template in an external editor. But it is easy to create a list for placeholders with the submenu.
