I am using Crossover in the UK, and so need to change the date format and currency type. How is that accomplished?

Thanks

These settings should be imported from your operating system's settings

The date and time are correct of course in time terms, but they display incorrectly for the UK which is dd/mm/yy. They display as per USA mm/dd/yy. Also the currency in the software appears as $ instead of £.

In regular Windows I could change these with Region & Language and Date & Time. I wonder can anyone knock up a utility to be able to change them in Crossover, or is there a utility somewhere for the task?

Thanks for your input so far

Well, I meant that the Region & Language and Date & Time settings are imported from the Linux/MacOS system. If that doesn't work, it sounds like a bug, and worth filing a support ticket.

I can't file a ticket as my software is over one year registered. This is the first ticket I would have had. Doesn't pay to be an early adopter 😢

By the way, the same problem exists for the Office Suite: though I am using UK formats on my MAc they are totally ignored by Crossover.

When I choose other languages it has no problem eg switching the language to German has the date and currency displaying correctly
