Formatted Timestamp in Field

Hi everyone!

I am a newbie developer and currently reading to improve myself with the FileMaker platform.

I have a button with a parameter linked to a script to insert a timestamp to a notes field. The timestamp shows in a format of mm/dd/yyyy plus the time AM / PM. The positioning is correct and always the newest timestamp shows to the top left of the field and the cursor blinks to the right of the timestamp with a space, ready to start typing.


How can i:

1. format the whole timestamp to be "bold"

2. change the timestamp format to Fri, October 12, 2018 14:50 (24hour format without the seconds)

3. display in timestamp the FileMaker user account name (the name a user logs in with into the solution)


Fri, October 12, 2018: 14:50 - User1:

Attached is the basic script i currently use. Thank you very much in advance for your time!!


P.S I do not need a "notes portal" as i have this setup elsewhere. This is just for a few basic timestamped user entries in a field.
