I didn’t think about the OS. When I looked at system preferences I see the option to define a short, medium and long form of the date but I don’t see a selection for something like preferred.
In general terms I would expect the OS to give the application control of the presentation of the date, if the date is an important parameter.
Based on what?
Based on 35 years of using a Mac. Seriously I do have an expectation as noted above that where dates are important then in general terms their presentation would be controlled within the application.
My guess is that if you don’t know of a tweak within Tinderbox to change this format then there isn’t one.
thanks for looking.
