shift-alt d creates a dynamic self updating date. so does just starting to type the current date.

But most of the time I want a static date to document the date i entered some info into the notes

a. is there a keyboard shortcut to enter a static today date?
b. is there a setting to make shift-alt d static

comment: supposedly Ctrl F11 will lock the date. But it doesn't consistently do that for me
Shift F9 is supposed to update locked dates

MS documentation was wrong. it's Ctrl-Shift F11 to lock and Ctrl-Shift F9 to unlock.

Wish there were a way to make the default for Shift-Alt d to be fixed date but don't think there is.
