There should be a short date stamp. I think that will do it.

The date format itself is a windows function, not a Softplan one.

 

Trying to read your date format, it's not clear what you are trying to acheive, as the numbers don't seem to mean a great deal.

Edit the note then at the bottom right click on Stamp. Select Short Date and erase the other Date Stamp.

You can also create a speed note for the Short Date. Place a note on the Drawing screen and go to Stamps on the lower right and click on Stamps then click on @ Date_Short, then click ok then go to System Library under Information Stamps click on one step draw a box around the @Date_Short to add it to your speed notes. The nit will show up on your Plan Set Page as 9/9/2021. Or you can just type it in a note as @Date_Short.

Is the first step to click on speed notes?  (I don't have @date_short as an option in my speednotes)

Type a note “@Date_Short” then go to the system library speed notes and click on one step draw a box around the note and it will add it to your system library speed notes. If the note turns purple then you know it worked
