Hi

I just looked at the timeline. And the year are properly sorted (from 1920 to 1931). But the days and months are inverted

Also, RW crashes when I select a topic from the timeline, delete some date (date of mariage for someone not married).

Anything similar to someone else?

Days and months are sorted by the US standard. For some reason that isn't configurable.

Everything to do with time is sort of on hold till custom calendars arrives.

You should submit the reproducible crash as a bug:

May that day be soon. I just invented a world which has a non-standard calendar. I knew I would eventually.

That's weird. I have a near future campaign with lots of dates that sorts dates by standard US rules. That looks like DD/MM sorting which is usual in the rest of the world. You might want to check where Windows thinks you live.

FWIW, doing a quick test here it appears that RW displays Gregorian Calendar dates using the system settings for short dates. On this machine I have short dates set to yyyy-MM-dd and they show that way in RW, but on another I have dates showing as M/d/yyyy and that's how they show in RW. Both have the dates sorting in the same order (they should be sorting using the underlying numeric representation).

If eponette's examples match how RW is showing them, the system short date setting should be dd/MM/yyyy.

Just to make sure: are all of these dates CE? (Assuming they're all supposed to be within the last century.)

That means that got fixed because previously someone in Europe definitely complained about US display and sort order of dates.

It is true that my date settings are dd/mm/yyyy (as it should be in Belgium). But then, what can/should I do?
