Broken dates with 4 digit years
 
Hi,

OmniFocus used to work perfectly with dates using a 4-digit year (the default when the International format is set to United Kingdom). One of the recent alphas changed this and now the program assumes a 2-digit year. So all my tasks now have dates that look like:

13/12/20
07

This isn't very nice. I can't re-size the columns, so I'm stuck with it. I could change the date format - but this means that it becomes "Custom" rather than "United Kingdom", meaning that there is even less chance of Apple Mail correctly formatting dates using its data detectors (and believe me, it is already a lottery). I've sent feedback about it and I realise that you are busy, but this looks really messy.

Is there any chance this could be fixed reasonably quickly?

Thanks,

Karen

Why not?

Resize the columns, click the camera icon in the perspectives window, and Bob's your uncle.

Note that to resize columns you have to display the View Bar, which also turns on column headings. (No, that's not obvious. It is beta though.)

Wonderful - thanks very much Curt. No, it wasn't obvious to me!
