Hello Studio wizards,

I've just installed Studio 2015 and I have the following problem: when I perform a concordance search, the date of TM entries appears under the mm/dd/yyyy format, while I would like it to be, as it is in Studio 2014 and Windows 7 settings. How can I change this setting, as it confuses me a lot (is 10/09 10 September or 9 October?).

Known issue Oct 11, 2016

This is a known bug in newer iterations of the software. Studio is _supposed_ to take its date format from your OS settings, but in recent updates a bug has been introduced whereby Studio overrides this to show in US format at all times (it also defaults to 12-hour clock format with AM/PM switches).

I agree with you; it is extremely annoying, and indeed confusing. I have been assured by SDL that it will be fixed. I would expect this to be fixed in the final release version of Studio 2017. Until then, we'll just have to be very careful!
