The Hour macro inserts the hour value from the current time.

 

The syntax for this macro is %[Hour]

 

Example

 

If the %[Hour] macro is used to specify watermark text and the current time is 12:30 then '12' is inserted:

 

hour.macro.example

Note that this macro is often used in conjunction with other macros in order to create combined output. For example the combined macros %[Hour]:%[Minute] output the hour followed by the minutes of the hour:

 

hour.macro.example.two
