Right now if you select %d for the date it print the format dd/mm/yyyy.
I find the dd/mm portion can be confusing when the day is less than the 12th ( e.g 02/05 - is that May 2 or Feb 5). I know each country is supposed to put them in a certain order, but It seems that the convention regarding the order of day and month is poorly adhered to. I often get expense receipts from gas bars etc. that can be stated either way, and I find they can be either way depending on the computer printing them.
My point is, would it be possible to have the date with a couple of options:
d Displays the day as a number without a leading zero (1-31).
dd Displays the day as a number with a leading zero (01-31).
mm Displays the month as a number with a leading zero (01-12).
mmm Displays the month as an abbreviation (Jan-Dec)
yy Displays the year as a two-digit number (00-99).
yyyy Displays the year as a four-digit number (0000-9999).
I prefer to print the month as mmm type (e.g Jan-Dec) so there is no ambguity.
Also, there is a minor error in your help page showing examples of setting the date etc format. Below is a portion of that help stating it shows page number, when in fact %p NOT %d is page number.
Examples: (once again, do not enter the quotes)
Print the file name on the left and page number on the right
Just print the page number (with no text) in the center
Thanks for the consideration,
