Use Date of Markers for Embedded tokens

Scroll Prev Up Next More

The Use Date of Markers for Embedded Tokens minicalendar modifier specifies that all ordinary/embedded tokens in the minicalendar should be converted using the baseline date of minicalendar date markers as the reference date.

 

The use date of markers for embedded tokens modifier is

 

:dte

 

Most of the time, using this modifier has no effect, as embedded tokens are evaluated, as usual, assuming that DayValue 1 is the first day of the month of the minicalendar.

 

The only time when the use of this modifier makes a difference, is when there is an offset to the beginning of the minicalendar dates, either through the use of starting date offsets, as in the examples below, or the use of left and right halves of month modifiers.

Note that the use of this modifier can produce some unexpected results, and is rarely used. If you think that this option might be of use to you in one of your diaries, you should contact technical support and discuss the matter.
