Description traut 2010-05-17 19:37:46 UTC
Impress and OOo should accept date and time formats, as given from the system setup.

If this cannot be recognized, the user should be permitted to define private

It's not that helpful to offer language setups only.

Example: YYYY-MM-DD, hh:mm would be a valid date format, according to DIN/ISO
standards in Germany. The other, traditional German setup would be D.M.YYY, h:mm
Uhr. The ISO setting is represented better e.g. by the Swedish language setup -
but there's no choice at all to use e.g. YYYY-MM only.

I'm afraid that German setup would not even be the default for the German OOo

It is possible in Writer to define those formats, but it is not possible in Impress.

Last not least taking a different language setup in fact does have no influence,
it is always US format only.
