Description Tobias Burnus 2011-06-13 02:13:18 UTC
If one inserts -> field command -> date & time -- and then double clicks on the date, one enters the  edit field command  dialog, where one can choose the date.

The example date (December 31, 1999) is badly chosen as one cannot distinguish showing the day as "31" or as "31". I would suggest a one-digit day, e.g. 2 such that one has "2" vs. "02" instead.

That is: Currently one has
  31 December 1999
  31 December 1999
in the list. Expected:
   3 December 1999
  03 December 1999

Still unchanged with LibreOffice 3.6.0.4

Quoting comment 0:
  If one inserts -> field command -> date & time -- and then double clicks on
  the date, one enters the  edit field command  dialog, where one can choose the
  date.

The problem is that there are multiple "31 Dec 1999" - one meaning a leading zero the other not. Example: "2 Dec 1999" or "02 Dec 1999". Thus, choosing a two-digit day of the month is not useful.

Okay, IMHO that should not be soo difficult...

Comment 12 Tobias Burnus 2018-09-21 13:57:58 UTC
Still the same with 6.1.0.1: It shows multiple entries of the form
  31 Dec 1999
and it is not possible whether that would become
  01 Dec 1999
or
   1 Dec 1999
if the day is single digit
