UTC Date/Time

Controls: Edit Menu >> Date/Time Preferences
Macros: UTC, UTCpref

During text entry into Notes, Fields, Labels, Macro Descriptions, Macro Definitions, or the Generator Title, CTRL+ALT+D will enter the current date, or CTRL+ALT+T will enter the current time.

If the UTC menu item is checked, those entries will be in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the international standard that replaces the former Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Otherwise, they will be in local time.

If the u Prefix item is checked, then whenever a UTC time or date is shown it will have a lowercase 'u' in front of it as a reminder. Note that this also applies to UTC dates and times entered via macros (see below), and to Time UTC and Date UTC options for Juxt Array trace labels. It does not apply to the Date and Time fields in the File Info dialog, since the Local/UTC button shows that status.

Macro Notes:

UTC=1 activates UTC entry, UTC=0 cancels it, and UTC=x toggles the current state.

Similarly, UTCpref=1 activates, UTCpref=0 cancels, and UTCpref=x toggles the u Prefix option.

The UTC control only applies to CTRL+ALT+D and CTRL+ALT+T keyboard entries. If you enter the date or time via macros, there are separate macro variables to specify local or UTC time. Using Field1 as an example:

Field1=t enters the local time.

Field1=d enters the local date.

Field1=uT enters the UTC time.

Field1=uD enters the UTC date.

If the u Prefix option has been checked and uT or uD are used, the time or date shown in the Field will be preceded by 'u' as a reminder.
