I would like to left justify the date in the KOMA-Script scrlttr2 class so that it aligns with the left margin of the body. I have no other data in the refline. This question helped me to get my present workaround, which is as follows:
Shrink the width of the refline field:
Manually position the refline field:
While this can produce the output I want, when the width of the date changes, such as at the start of the month (think July->August), I have to manually edit the variables to get the proper alignment.
Is there a more elegant way within KOMA-Script to left justify the date? If there is not a built-in method: Is there a way to automate the calculation of the widths or lengths when I compile so that justification remains constant regardless of the length of date?
