Displaying 2-Digit Dates in Minicalendars

Scroll Prev Up Next More

Add a 2-Digit Dates minicalendar modifier to a minicalendar token to have the conversion of the @ dates markers use 2 characters.

 

Prepend with 0

 

Use the :dd modifier to display all the dates of a minicalendar using 2 digits, with dates from 1 to 9 prepended with a 0 (zero), as shown in the example below.

 

 

Prepend with a figure space

 

Use the :Xd modifier to replace all the @ minicalendar dates markers using 2 characters, using figure spaces, as needed, to make sure that each position that originally held a @ marker is replaced by 2 characters.

 

Using the :Xd modifier, not only are the dates from 1 to 9 prepended with a figure space, but additionally, all the empty positions (those with no date) are also replaced by 2 figure spaces.

 

As can be seen in the example below, the use of figure spaces to make each date position 2-digit, with the justified paragraph setting, allows for the re-sizing of the minicalendar without the need to set, or reset, tab positions.
