Insert Time and Date Macro

Here is a macro that will type in the time and date for you. By default it uses the Keyboard Maestro status menu, but you could give it a hot key trigger if desired.

The macro includes three versions of the Insert Text by Typing action, two of which are disabled. Each one shows a different format - you can adjust the format in many other ways as well.

With TextExpander on it’s way out from my system, these macros are just what I needed. Thanks for sharing them.
