Add the Region, Date, Time format to the Project File rather than in the O/S

If you are working of projects for different countries and regions, it would be nice to have the Date format read from the Project File rather than the O/S. Currently you need to change the date format, you need to change your location within the operating system. It would be nice to have these options in the Project File.


Currently if you are in Canada they use DD-MM-YY and if your are in the US, it would be MM-DD-YY. It's fine once the number are equal and greater than 13. 01-12-14 could be the 1st of December or Januay 12th depending what side of the 49th you are on.


Switching the date in the O/S also messes up other dates on your system as well.

Hello Blair,


I agree!  An alpha month would be great kind of like the best before dates on products.  (i.e. 03-MR-14)


This would reduce the confusion for all.
