Comment 1 Dieter 2020-06-03 15:29:25 UTC
Does it happen only in header or footer (this is bug 133459) or also in normal text area?

Comment 2 Dave.Howe 2020-06-03 17:43:01 UTC
The date format is in header. In same document put date format in normal text area and saved document. When re-opened date format in header was not retained but in text area was retained.
