Inserting date - still a problem

Last night I used the keyboard shortcut I made to insert the date.
Unfortunately there was no choice that I could see to insert date (fixed).
This morning the date has changed to today's date. So I think I probably
need a macro.

I looked under Macros and have to enable JRE, which I think puts my
computer more at risk for hackers etc. Not only that, the option seemed to
be to run a Macro already created, but I didn't see an option to record the
steps for a Macro. I don't suppose there is a work-around?

An autotext will be easier: insert the fixed date field, select it and to
to Tools → Autotext, give it a name and a shortcut, something like
"fixed-date" and "fd" (no quotes) and accept. Now on any part of any
document type fd and press F3 to get the field.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that for creating the autotext you need to open
the "AutoText" button at the bottom of the window and select "New".
