Modification date no longer working.

I have used this in the past and it seems to have just stopped working.
I don’t know if it has changed since the InDesign 2021 update.


When I save the document as a PDF it no longer displays the date that I modified the document. I does not show todays date.

 

Here is how I have always done it in the past:
Created a test block on a Master page.
For the test block I selected Type > Text Variables > Insert Variables > Modification Date.

 

Did they change the way it works now?
Did anyone else have this problem and find a fix?

I got this working.

I closed all Adobe products and then reoped InDesign and it started working again.

Weird.

Yeah, InDesign has some weird quirks to it.

I have at times tried to open InDesign from my desktop and it will not open at all.

What I have found is that it never closed correctly from my previouse seasion and is still running in he background.

If I go to my Windows Task Manager, it will show that it is running but I is not showing in my task bar as running on my desktop.

What I have to do is click on it in the Task Manager and then right click and End Task.

After doing this it will open up in Windows.

It can be a pain in the ass but that's what works.
