If I use the shortcut CTRL+;, the date that is pasted is the server date. I have changed the settings so my Time zone is selected to my local time. Shouldn't my Local time get pasted as opposed to the server time? Do I need to configure elsewhere or this feature isn't implemented the way I am expecting it to behave?

Is there any difference with the updated shortcut Ctrl+Shift+;? – MaQleod Apr 20 '11 at 6:53
@MaQleod: No, that only prints the time. I want the date. Being in timezone which is around 12 hours ahead with server time, for earlier part of the day here, I get a date that is 1 day behind. – Shamim Hafiz Apr 20 '11 at 7:01

I tried Ctrl+; and it shows the local date (and time with Ctrl+Shift+;) so the issue appears to be fixed.
