Description Thomas Weiland 2016-12-15 12:58:12 UTC
Created attachment 129666 [details]
Test document with date field.

I use the German version of LibreOffice.
I created a new text document and added a date field with formatting "31. Dezember 1999" to the document.

On the screen is displayed: 15. Dezember 2016.

Then I save the document in the MS Office DOCX-Format and close it. After opening it again in LibreOffice it shows:
31. December 2016

This means, the language for the paragraph has been switched from German to English. I can now format the language for the paragraph to German again, but when I save and open again, I will get the english date again.

Test document attached.
