Customize Insert Date

Agree with this. I would like to be able to customise the date format for the insert date keyboard shortcut.

Insert date: Alt + Shift + D -> inserts date in "9 June 2023" format. I would like to use eg. "09/06/2023" format instead.

Not sure if Evernote app is following the Windows Regional format or not - but my Windows 11 is set to:

   Short date: 09/06/2023

   Long date: 09 June 2023

..so Evernote must be choosing the Long date if it is following the system settings. I'd like it to use the short date - or at least give me the option to choose.

Ideally I'd like Evernote to allow a custom format including additional characters using string substitution - eg. letting me specify eg. "dd/mm/yyyy: " to get "09/06/2023: "


I would also like to be able to customise the keyboard shortcuts as these are inconsistent with Windows (Microsoft Office):


Insert date: Shift + Alt + D. Microsoft Office: Shift + Alt + D <- same

Insert time: Ctrl + Shift + D. Microsoft Office: Shift + Alt + T <- inconsistent
