You’re not describing what’s the issue you’re having.
Comment 2 Andreas Säger 2015-10-03 21:42:03 UTC
The screeshot demonstrates clearly that I've set up a date acceptance pattern which includes D/Y, opened a blank, new, unformatted document and entered a valid date expression 6/7 which was not accepted. Instead I get the text 6/7.
The only way to enter a date
