: I work with Canadian settings - i.e. dates are dd/mm/yyyy
: When I am entering transactions and I try to tab between portions of the date field, it seems to check the month first and reject a day of 31 if the (old) month that was in the date field has less than 31 days. For example, if it is June and I am adding a transaction for 31 May, the default date in the date field when I bring up the dialog is a date in June (which hath but 30 days). If I enter 31 in the day part of the date and tab to the month part, it appears to decide that, since June has only 30 days, I must have meant 1 instead of 31.
: This is apparently a hang over from US Centric code that assumed everyone worked with dates in the mm/dd/yyyy format (which is not usually true for the few billion people in the world who are not American)
: Any chance of fixing it?
