Manual update of date field [closed]

asked 2017-02-20 13:52:10 +0100

Ole Tange gravatar image explains very well the difference between fixed and automatic.

Is it possible to update a fixed field?

So far I have used the workaround: Convert to automatic. Convert to fixed.

But is there a 'update fixed field' that I am not aware of?

See - fixed fields are meant to be fixed, that is they will not be updated. If you want to automatically update a field in a document, you shouldn't make it fixed.

If I start of with a template-like document, which I want to edit and save as a new file, I might want to keep the date fields fixed in general, but update them once while creating the new file.

I also do "Convert to automatic. Convert to fixed", but maybe there is a better solution.
