Added a custom Outline Date field to my project.
Not being American, set the format DD MM YYYY (ie NOT MM DD YYYY).
Enter a value for a document using the date-select dialogue, eg 28/8/22.
In Outliner, displays as “28 1313 2022”
Update (sorry should’ve said): Current version Scrivener just installed; Windows 10.
I have an IT background, understand the difficulties when we can’t reproduce a bug. Your reply made me wonder if the hyphens were significant, but I get the same result either way.
Attached are screen snips so you can verify my steps.
I am seeing same here with Scrivener 3.2.3. Can enter date into the column display. Entering the date via the calendar widget in the Inspector for “today” shows 20-0500-2022 in the display in the Inspector. When I change the date with the widget in the Inspector, the date does not change on the Outline view display.
But unless it is just random luck, it seems to return the week’s number (x/52) in the year/month/day context.
Nevermind, I just verified, it doesn’t. No idea what 39 is.
But the point is that if you use capital Ms as per the instructions, it works.
[Actually, “39” was correctly the minutes of the hour at which I had initially inserted the date in the metadata field. So it (mm) was indeed doing its job right. ← I just noticed, creating the new above screenshot (which I should have left as is, but didn’t. Thought of it too late. Need more coffee.)]
