Dates format reset


GP appears to use the UK format for dates (“DD/MM/YY”) out of the box. This is hard to read for someone who has used the international format (“YYYY-MM-DD”) for decades!. Imagine if I told you you had to write “one hundred twenty three” as “321”!

GP seems not to pick up the date format specified in Windows (I think it should). Is it picking it from my location?

So how do I change this format for my projects, please?

GanttProject uses date format which is the default for the chosen interface language, as understood by Java Runtime. You can set your own date format in the settings dialog. Edit.Setings.Application UI


It’s good to know that this format can be reset. However, I’ve no idea what or where the settings (or is it “setings”?) dialog is, or how to alter it. Could you please tell me in detail how to change the format? Thank you.
