Text Display in literal mode should recognize «page#»

Issue #593 resolved
Jim Rea repo owner created an issue

You can substitute field names in literal mode using «field name», but «page#» does not work.

I think the fix for this will either be in NSStrings+Extras->makeMergeFormula, or in Text Display right after this method is called.

There may also be date/time substitutions that need to be handled? Yes, see «date: pattern» on page 1103 of the Panorama 6 Handbook.

    Text Display objects in Literal Mode now support substitution of «page#» and «date: pattern» tags. For the «date: pattern» tag, only the patterns listed on page 1103 of the Panorama 6 Handbook are supported. If some other unusual pattern is desired, this has to be done with a formula substitution and the datepattern( function. Fixes issue #593.
