Hi - how do I customise a signature or a fingerprint (user name + today's date) and store it so that it is available for use in all my documents? I can settle for it being part of a template as well. I tried AutoComplete but it doesn't work. Is there a macro I can write for this or is there some other way to do it?
Thanks in advance...

Try to insert fields into your template by using the Insert-Fields menu. I'm not working under a multi user or networked enviroment, so I am not sure whether the user name(author) field and the initial field will change to reflect the current user. Please feed back. Thanks.

If your not looking for anything fancy just type "The Brat " and do Ctrl+F2 > Document tab > Type=Date, Select=Date ( not the fixed one), and Format=your preference and Insert it.

Select it all, then Edit > AutoText.

If you can't figure it out from there check the Help in the AutoText window.
