Issue:  I am running the trial version. It doesn't seem that I can enter dates in the YYYY-MM-DD format e.g., 2012-09-22. Am I right in reading the help in this way?   

I have set Windows 8 to display YYYY-MM-DD in short form as a default but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Can you help me?

  1. You can enter the information numerically format as you are used to. ie 2012-09-14 (Including the separators or spaces)
  2. However, after the date entry is complete, the display will be the display as set in Options.
  3. Timeline Maker's Options* for date display  have only two options for reporting the date.  These are dd-mmm-yyyy or mmm-dd-yyyy.

* See Tools, Options, General tab.
