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
shift f9 is supposed to update lock dates but its not doing it for me.
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.
