Preferences - Dates and Times

Previous topic Next topic  

The Dates and Times tab contains various options for customizing the format of dates and times in PhonePad.  By default, PhonePad will use the settings as specified under the Windows Control Panel.  However, this tab allows you to change the formats used (this does not change the Control Panel settings and so will not affect any other applications).
