For some time now I've been able to insert the date into LibreOffice Calc cells by pressing Ctrl; combination like in Excel.

With regard to this I have two questions:

  1. Is it possible to make it insert only the DATE without the time (right now it inserts ddmmyy hhmmss).

  2. Where is this option located in the menu as I couldn't find it anywhere?


In LibreOffice 4.1:

  • Date: Ctrl;

  • Time: CtrlShift;

    Some keyboard layouts require you to press the shift key to produce a semicolon and thus you can only insert the time but not the date. This can be circumvented by setting a custom keyboard shortcut for date insertion: Go to Tools>Customize>Keyboard, and on the bottom search for Insert>Current Date – Askaga May 12 '14 at 12:39
