QuickKey’s preferences allow you to customize both the shortcut you use to enter dates, and the format of the dates. By default, the shortcuts are dt for a short date, and date for a long date. However, you can change these shortcuts and the dates.
Choosing a Date Format
You can choose different date formats by typing them in QuickKey’s preferences. Some common examples are below. For more details, see this page.
