Today in the UK the date is Saturday 14th September 2013 but Libreoffice still doesn't allow this as a default date format.
Steps to reproduce:
1. INSERT....OTHER....DATE etc
2. Select format from selection list (or create own using DDDDD)
Current behavior: Saturday 14 September 2013
Expected behavior: Saturday 14th September 2013
Operating System: All
CONFIRMED in Libreoffice 22.214.171.124.beta1 + Ubuntu 12.04.3
Entering "DDDDD" as the number Format code results in (the equivalent of) "Saturday14".
"DDDDD" ordinal day date format does not appear in Help files yet, either:
Severity -> enhancement
Status -> NEW
Created attachment 89826 [details]
Document showing (un)superscripted dates.
Just wanted to add a bump to this enhancement request as automatic date fields are basically unusable for me without the ability to include an ordinal in the day portion of the date.
As of LibreOffice 6.1 ordinal numbers in number format codes are available with the NatNum12 modifier. For this example that would be the format code
[NatNum12 D=ordinal-number]DDDD D
See the NatNum12 section at the bottom of https://help.libreoffice.org/6.2/en-US/text/shared/01/05020301.html
