Date Modified text time

Good morning McNeel world and happy early Thanksgiving.

I embed a Date Modified text time stamp on every drawing I produce in Layout. For some reason the time it displays is several hours off of the time on my computer. My computer says 11/25/20 7:38 AM and the Date Modified text says 11/25/20 12:39 (no AM or PM).

Any way to correct this?

Thank you.

Hi -

I can’t reproduce that here. Could you post a 3dm file?

Yes. Date Modified time off.3dm (34.3 KB) Here it is.

Just a thing to check - does changing your location in Document Properties help?

Why it defaults to Accra here I have no idea…

It doesn’t seem to, Mitch. :thinking:

OK, I have never used that, thought it might do something like my phone that changes calendar times when I’m in a different time zone… I don’t know why it doesn’t use your system clock then.

Edit - I just saved your file here and I noticed it’s exactly one hour off - i.e. I am at GMT+1, and the time looks to be GMT. A clue maybe?

Oh wait - I just added hh:mm to see and it’s not 2PM, it’s 2AM… So it’s 13 hours off… I also set the location to here to check, no change. Bizarre.

Thanks - I was taking a short-cut and using the Date text field so as not to have to save… :man_facepalming:
I’m also seeing this with the DateModified text field.
But unlike Mitch, it appears to be 1 hour off here…

At any rate - on this list as RH-61705.

The 2:24 is actually 02:24, not 14:24… add an additional h to h:mm to get hh:mm

Thank you, all. It’s a little thing… but worth investigating :smile:

But then it gets even stranger when HH:mm shows 14:24…


Ha! :crazy_face:
