I am trying to find out if I can set up a keyboard shortcut to print/type in the current date and time in a Google Docs document (not sheets). Anyone?

The best I could find is an Add-on Text Factory menu, not shortcut, but since the last few weeks is one-hour off (presumably the code does not update to day savings changes).

There isn't such shortcut for a date and time in Google Docs.

(avail shortcuts here: https://support.google.com/docs/...)

You could accomplish this task with the 3rd-party script tool like AutoHotKey and set up date and time insertion upon custom defined keyboard shortcut.
