Hot-Key to Copy System Time or Time and Paste in Mac Not Working

Roe Moore

Recommended Posts

I'm having an incredibly hard time figuring out how to make the hot-key setting on the Mac version work to copy the time or system time. On my PC it was very easy to do, but on my Mac, it's proving to be incredibly difficult. Every key combination isn't working...I've tried just the ~ by itself, command+~, even tried command+shift+Z. Any advice on how to make the hot-key work to copy the time and allow me to paste it into a word document or excel file?

So, this function used to work just fine when you had Microsoft Word open and were typing. I'm on OS Mojave (Dark Mode) and have had no luck getting this work. In fact, other commands aren't really working either, anymore.  N_C_H_josh's suggestion only works if you click back into the Express Scribe window, and you can easily type the timecode in yourself by keeping Express Scribe by hitting View>Float above other windows. Really hoping someone has a solution to this, because adding hotkeys no longer works!
