EXIF date should be available in multiple date formats

At the moment, On1 uses US date formatting. MMDDYYYY. This is unfamiliar in many parts of the world – for example UK uses DDMMYYYY. It would be great if On1 had an option to choose date formatting. Such a simple thing, but it would make it much easier for non-US residents to read dates at a glance.

    Using the ISO Standards and with possiblities to choose how much and in what viewing format…

    I totally agree.
    In Norway we use DD MMM YYYY or DD MM YYYY (or the ISO Standard short form: YYYY-MM-DD).

    On1 should only pick up the system settings for time and date and show what the user already have on her/his computer… and then give the user a function to change it in software if the user want to.

    +1. This would work either having control over date format display within RAW or if RAW just inherited the date/time settings (include 12/24 hour clock) from the OS date/time settings.

    Another desirable option would be YYYYMMDD to allow easier sorting by Year. Also have the option for 12/24 hour clock within On1.

    Seems to use the systems regional settings in 2019 beta.

    Thanks Michael – I’ve not installed the beta so I’ll look forward to the update when it’s finalised.

    ON1 Photo Raw 2019 still uses 12H clock in presentation of EXIF data, even though the OS is set up to 24H.

    Please show the date and time format the way I have configured my PC. I see no need for a further option in On1. This is the way Adobe Bridge has done it for years. If I want to change the format, I will do so through my PC’s configuration.

    It isn’t just EXIF data that is incorrect/inflexible. 20019.1 still doesn’t use regional settings (for Windows, anyway) anywhere in ON1 which is irritating albeit not critical. I would have thought a fairly simple fix that would make non-US users happier! The regional settings API is there for a reason. Please use it.

    2019.5 still uses the US format … is it not time to acknowledging the people in the rest of the world.

    Is there anywhere one can see what on1 actual picks up from these user suggestions and will work on?

    I use DD/MM/YYYYY. Isn’t the US the only place to use the crazy MM/DD/YYYY format? Even the ISO standard would be preferable to that. Easiest thing would be for the program to pick up the format from the OS settings.
