Inline commands not working sometimes?

Sometimes when I try to input inline commands it doesn’t work, particularly for the energy and time commands. I checked the documentation to make sure I was doing it right and it seems correct. Most of the time it doesn’t work but sometimes it does (I haven’t been able to figure out which scenarios it does and doesn’t work). I’m on a Linux machine. Am I doing something wrong?

There’s this issue: [Fix in next update] Time inline command not setting the time
It will be fixed in the upcoming update.
