What about this feature? :-)

We dont have the character substitution stuff, ie, variables, in place yet.. once that is done, this is easy, and customisable per document.

It seems this is still not implemented in 1.5.4. Most of my use cases are structured documents which generally require creation date to be printed as part of the final output. The above list would be wonderful. I'd request that the date options be expanded to include "creation date" and "modification date" - optimally of both the template and the document, this differentiation is useful for document tracking.

Further, it would incrementally meet my needs if the formats could be specified somewhat easily as I have use cases for YYYYMMDDHHMM as well as YYYY-MM-DD and even, occasionally mmm DD, YYYY.

Additional variables that are useful might include:
- HeaderLevelXTitle (e.g. chapter title, section title)

I wonder what's the state of this? Managing title, subject and similar document information is way more convenient through the "Document Setup" dialog than with workarounds like "variable text".
