[Solved] Date input interpretation

Postby netanalizer » Mon Mar 20, 2017 8:38 pm

Hello!
When I enter date in format "1/3" I suppose it'd be interpreted as March, 1, but instead I've got Jan, 1.
How do I change this default interpretation?
Thanks for help

1/3 never evaluates to 1st of January. If you mean 3rd of January, go to Tools>Options>LangaugeSettings>Languages and change the second option (locale) to something which is not like English(USA).
