I am missing two shortcuts from excel:

^; for inserting the current date
and
^: for inserting the current time

in Neooffice I could not find any thing similar, not even in the insert menu!

Also in the toolbar I can't find any the the paste value function, I found a a way to bypass this problem, the side menu of the paste icon, but it is not perfect.
The ideal thing would be a shortcut for pasting value.

Otherwise I love Neooffice and do not use Microsoft any more

Insert>Function... and Category Date & Time suggests that =Today() will give you current date.

I see that =NOW() will give you current date and time.

As for time on its own... ?

You can always record a macro inputting these functions and assign shortcuts to them in Tools>Customize...>Keyboard.

To get the hour and minutes, enter in the formula bar

Code:
=CONCATENATE(HOUR(NOW());":";MINUTE(NOW()))


Hope that helps

Jacqueline
Edit: you can get the seconds by adding
Code:
SECOND(NOW())



Code:
=CONCATENATE(HOUR(NOW());":";MINUTE(NOW());":";SECOND(NOW)))

Many thanks @jgd.
I also found that formula useful, 'cept the seconds part was too accurate for my needs!

However, and I don't mean to be picky, shouldn't that be

SECOND(NOW()))

(Extra close bracket at end?)



Hooroo...

Jacqueline's full code example at the bottom has the right number of )'s - the SECOND(NOW()) example is of the standalone use of the SECOND() function, I believe...

Sorry, in the last line, I forgot an opening bracket. That should be
Code:
=CONCATENATE(HOUR(NOW());":";MINUTE(NOW());":";SECOND(NOW()))


CONCATENATE() two brackets
HOUR(), MINUTE(), and SECOND() two brackets
NOW() two brackets

Sometimes, I'm a bit careless Sad

Well spotted, I missed that one - this reminds me of my days programming in LISP Confused - we had a great LISP editor that put a pointer over the matching parenthesis when your cursor was on one, so you could see why there should be 7 instead of 6, or whatever...
