Password Of The Day (XInfo) "PassWordOfTheDay" - Display a password generated from today's date.

Admit it. It's getting harder and harder to dream up a new password. Already you have a hundred sitting in a file cunningly called "PassWords.doc", and each new service requires a password, and you need to change some of them every 90 days.

See also the macro "PassWordOfTheTime".

Decrease Style Font Size (XStyles) "DecreaseStyleFontSize" - Changes the font size in the selected paragraph style by -0.5; resets to 12 at zero.
Typically I have several block of MacroText styled paragraphs[ in a document; within one block a line wraps around. I want to reduce the font size so that the line does not wrap around, and I want the Macrotext blocks to be consistent in appearance.
I need to change the font size of the paragraph style.
If the font size reduces to zero, it will restart at 12 points.
See also the macro "IncreaseStyleFontSize".

Type Yesterday (XTextGen) "TypeYesterday" - Types yesterday'’s date as a formatted string at the selection point. (see GUIUnderPersonal).
This data will be fixed in the document.
Confession: Sometimes I don'’t get around to writing your report until the next morning. I use this macro to make it look as if I wrote the report yesterday!
