    You're right!
    I've never actually used the basic Date field, usually I go with the SaveDate that updates every time the drawing is saved. But by using PlotDate it would always plot with the current date.

    Maybe that's the solution, for the OP to use a different field if they want it to automatically update "Plotdate" or "Savedate"

    If they could use RTEXT with the DIESEL expression
    Code:
    $(edtime,$(getvar,date),MONTH DD"," YYYY)
    instead of an attribute it should always display the current date.

    For the Field category try using Other, DieselExpression for Field name and adding
    Code:
    $(edtime,$(getvar,date),MO"/"DD"/"YYYY)
    It should update with a regen, but you may have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
