Abbreviations enter any short forms and what you would like them expanded to. These short forms work in most fields and can be used to quickly replace the text you type with a more prosaic version.

There are some standard (built in) short forms like:

  • xDay - the day of the week in full format like 'Monday'
  • xDate - the current date in full format like 'June 12, 2019
  • xTime - the current time in 12 hour format with am/pm
  • xNow - the current date/time in timestamp format. eg. yyyy-mm-dd HH:MM:SS

so you could type a short form like xNow NSF and it would expand to 2019-08-20 6:28 am Not So Fast using both the standard abbreviation and one you created for yourself.
