I often need to insert these fields in my footrs: Path, Filename, Date, Time. Here is how I do it:
I do not use a mouse.
ALT, n, o, e, (see the cursor in footer), ALT, n, q, f, f, (“Filename” s/b selected), alt-p, <CR>, TAB (just to create some space),
ALT, n, q, f, d, d, (“date” s/b selected), TAB, TAB, select the desired date format with up a/o down arrows, <CR>.
There has got to be a quicker way, sans mouse.
Any ideas? Last resort would be a macro, but happy to go that route.
