Description sforbes 2004-11-28 12:52:10 UTC
When the locale is set to Hebrew, the defaults for date formats in Impress are

Short dates are mm/dd/yy, while they should be dd/mm/yy (the format used in Israel).
Long dates are in English (e.g. Sunday November 28 2004) while they should be in
Hebrew (The words for day of the week and month should be in Hebrew. Not to be
confused with Jewish dates).

To repro:
* in your OOo prefrences, make sure your locale is set to Hebrew.
* Create a blank impress document
* insert--> Fields--date

The date you get is wrong format.

Selecting the field and Right clicking it gives you a context menu where you can
change toggle between short and long dates- both give wrong formats for a Hebrew

Looks ok in 2.1.

Similar problem in Impress 2.0.1.
Because of a bug which saves super-big files, I don't use 2.1.

Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2, Chinese Trad.
OpenOffice Impress 2.0.1, Chinese Trad.

I have a file where the date in reality is 2007y.02m.27d.

1. While editing, it shows 96/2/27 (year 96 of the Republic
of China).

2. If you right-click it, it is preselected at "02/27/07 (&E)".

3. Look at the left-panel preview, it shows "02/27/07".

4. Click "View Slideshow", it sometimes show "96/2/27",
sometimes "02/27/07".

I have not tried 2.1 yet.

works just fine in version 2.4.0 (debian sid)

different date types are inserted visually correct in slides. 
this was tested with different languages according to each language norm.

please see if you can close it. (unless it can be re-produced by reporter)
