Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is possible to convert numbers (indicated in milliseconds) with inline expressions into date, time, or duration values. The expressions are similar to the Live Inline Expressions and look like this: {num:{NUMBER}:{TYPE}:{FORMAT}}. It is also possible to add colored values with the expression syntax {txt:{COLOR}:num:{NUMBER}:{TYPE}:{FORMAT}}. Please see Colors for possible color values. This feature is available since version 0.1.91. Please see following example.
