Some emails and documents call for time and date stamps. Sure, you could go and type out the time and date; it’s easy enough to look at a clock and calendar and then type in the information. But you don’t need to, since there are quick and dirty text snippets that can insert them for you. To insert the current date, type the letters L and then d, followed by a space. To insert the current time, type the letters L and then t, followed by a space. Your BlackBerry will automatically take care of the conversion. There are a few little notes to go along with this tip. For starters, perhaps you use LD or LT as an acronym. It would be inconvenient to have the date or time inserted every time you typed those letters, then. If you hit backspace twice, though, you’ll wipe out the date or time, leaving the original LD or LT. Just hit space and keep typing as usual. If you don’t want to do even this, you can delete the entry from Word Substitution. We covered how to use Word Substitution in a previous quick tip. Just find the entries for LD and LT, and delete them. You’ll also see here that you can use %D or %T to insert the date or time. Clearly, though, using LD and LT requires fewer keystrokes. Note, too, that case matters. If you type a lowercase d, the date will come out with normal capitalization. If you type an uppercase D, however, the date will come out in all caps.
