Daily note template not respecting date format settings

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new template - include the following:


  1. Add a date format - Go to Settings > Templates > Date Format and insert:

dddd, MMMM Do YYYY

  1. Update the daily note to use the template - Go to Settings > Daily notes and update Template file location to be the template created in the first step

  2. Open today’s daily note - Open command pallet and run:

Daily notes: Open today’s daily note

Expected result

I expect the daily note to respect the format set within the settings. The current set up should generate a daily note with the formatted date at the top. At the time of righting this the date should appear as: Wednesday, October 12th 2022

Actual result

Output: 2022-10-12
