Description des 2006-07-06 23:39:27 UTC
While editing a template, in the Insert, Fields, Other dialog I went into Date,
then Additional formats... In this dialog, I can add a date format (e.g. MMMM
YYYY). Exiting from the dialog seems to throw away the added format. The Save
icon is greyed out, so Writer does not recognize the additional format as a change.

Please add functionality to allow date formats to be added and removed (some of
the formats are of no use to me).

1. Open a template for editing
2. Insert, Fields, Other
3. Select "Date" on the Document tab
4. Scroll to Additional formats... and select. This opens the format dialog
5. Select a date format close to the format you want to create (e.g. 31 December
6. Edit in the Format code dialog (e.g. make it MMMM YYYY)
7. Click the check mark to add the format, click OK, then Close. Cancel the dialog
8 Save the template, then open a document based on it
9. Going to Insert, Fields, Other, the selecting "Date" does not show the format
you just added.

Please let me know if you need further clarification.

It is not possible to save user date/time format for the whole application (only
document related).
It is not possible to delete the predefined formats.
