time and date format

Postby wladzinek » Mon Jul 13, 2015 1:48 am

I am Windows Desktop and iPad user. I had to re-install the app on my Desktop recently. The problem occurs with date and time format. My computer is set to UK date and time zone (DD/MM/YYYY) with 24 hour clock. All record have MM/DD/YYYY and 12 hour format am/pm. Any attempts of changing it in Preferences do not bring any result. I had the same problem when I first purchased it and "somehow" I had what I wanted, after repetitive changes in Preferences. Am I missing something or where is the problem?

Just for testing purposes, would it change anything if you specified the date format as "DD-MM-YYYY"? This format is common in a number of European countries. The date format with slashes is often interpreted by default as the American date format "MM/DD/YYYY" and this might happen here "by accident".

Hi,
Thanks for your post.
Unfortunately I am not able to change anything. The drop-down menu in Preferences has all the options I am looking for, but no changes are introduced. Also all splash screens like "Welcome to Handbase" and other keep appearing in spite of unticking them. Does anyone have any idea?
