Template messing up “insert time”

What I did:
Created a template with this date command in the title:

\date(EEE d MMM YYYY)

What happened:

It works.

But when I then run \time or the time button on iPad, in any note, instead of the time, the date is inserted in the same format as in the template.

What I expected:

My default time format to be inserted.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):

11.2, iPadOS 14.1

You can reset to the default format by typing \date(default), see also Creating and Using Templates and Actions

Hmm. I know I can reset to my chosen format - but I don’t want to have to do this after every time I run the template!

Basically, in the template I want the date in format X, but in notes I want the date in format Y. Running the template resets the format to X.

Also, note that I used a date command, but that affected the time format - which I don’t think it should do!

Ah, I wasn’t aware it was changing it on running the template, that shouldn’t happen indeed. I’ll fix that.
