Date entry using keyboard shortcut

Post by Jon Polish » Fri Oct 19, 2018 2:09 pm

I am running the latest update of Softmaker 64 bit under Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. The system date is set to display yyyy-mm-dd or 2018-10-19. However, when I use the keyboard shortcut (CTRL + .), the date appears 10-19-2018. Thinking that PlanMaker might be using the long date system format, I modified that but got the same results.

How can I use the keyboard shortcut to enter the current date in the format I specify?

Thank you.

Jon

PlanMaker always uses the system date/time settings. For me it's dd.mm.yyyy (with German regional settings). Please check your system settings again.

Thank you Sven. The system is set for the short date to read yyyy-mm-dd (or 2018-10-23). The long date is set for October 23, 2018. PlanMaker inserts 23-10-2018 when I use the keyboard shortcut. I have tried changing the system long date, but this has no effect. Please see the attached screenshots.

I can now reproduce that issue and will report it to the developers.
