24-hour times gone!

24-hour times gone! - 02/17/08 09:41 PM

After upgrading to 10.5.2, my calendar can only show 12-hr, AM/PM times Sad In my business it's VERY important to use 24-hr times. I know that NOW is based on the System time setting, but in the control panel, after customizing to a 24-hr clock, there's a warning that older apps may not be able to use the customized setting.

Anyone have experience here, or a reasonable suggestion?

Hi Ron,

Yes, this is a known issue for NUDC and has been reported in this forum. NUDC uses the System clock settings, and those changed in 10.5.X. We currently do not have a fix for this issue in 5.3.2 build.

The 24 > 12 hour time shifting problem has happened off and on to my 5.2 and 5.3 over the last couple of years, both with Tiger and Leopard. Seems to be random, and my fix is to quit NUD, reselect 24 hour time format in System Preferences (International - same as it was before), and relaunch NUD. Usually works - if not, I just do it again, and wait for the next hiccup, which usually occurs once every two months or so.

Fred,

Your post caused us to look at this again. I confirmed from before that if I change the format (System Preferences->Date & Time->Open International, Formats), then set the time to be the 24 hour clock, NUD is not using that format.

However, if I first set the Region to be "United Kingdom", in NUD the 24 hour clock is supported. If I don't like the UK default settings, I can further customize them to use the US Dollar, reformat to month/day/year (rather than day/month/year), etc. If I start with the US region and then change to the 24 hour clock, NUD doesn't recognize the format change.
