ItemDescription
Text line

In this field, specify the contents of the header or footer. If necessary, combine plain text with print keywords. By default, CLion suggests to print the name of a file $FILE$ in the header and the current page number $PAGE$ of all pages $TOTALPAGES$ in the footer.

  • $FILE$ prints fully qualified filename.

  • $PAGE$
  • $DATE$
  • $TIME$
