  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the Help page User options for locales we state:
    Date display and input format
    The default date format used by Rational DOORS is
    derived from the short date and time format used by Windows in
    your
    current locale. You can select
    from any of the date and time input formats and display formats
    that
    are available in your current locale.
    
    This is not accurate.  If the date does not include the time,
    the
    default format is the LONG date format.  The short one is only
    used if
    the date includes the time.  The documentation should be fixed
    to
    reflect this.
