How about a hot-key to insert today's date? :)

It's not a hot-key but if you click on the calendar icon at the end of the date field it will default to today's date if the field is blank. You can then hit enter and it will add today's date to the date field.

What I will do is add an enhancement request for a hot-key to open the calendar in that field. The enter-key already works to add that date there. FYI, there is already an enhancement request for hot-keys to move from calendar to calculator tab in that window.

Hi Renee,

A hot-key to open the calendar, then simply hitting the enter key would absolutely work! Thank you.

The place where I am most using today's date in source and citation date fields.

I don't think I understand the previous request for the calculator, but if I could enter today's date in source and citation date fields with a couple of keystrokes, and no thought as to what today's date actually is, that would be fabulous. Hot-Key for Date-calculator would be fine since, as it currently exists, it only takes an arrow key to switch from the newly opened date calculator to the calendar.

Thank you for helping, and always responding quickly, we are fortunate to have you.

Today, right now in Rootsmagic 6, you can do this:

It's not a hot-key but if you click on the calendar icon at the end of the date field it will default to today's date if the field is blank. You can then hit enter and it will add today's date to the date field.
