Title

Formatting "Current Date" Entered from Insert Menu

Post

Using Mac OSX 10.6.7, and FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced, and inserting the current date into a text field by using the Insert menu item, the date elements are separated by a forward slash. Is there anyway to force FileMaker to use the operating system format in use, which in my case would be periods, to separate the date elements? I.e., 28.04.2011 (operating system format) rather than 28/04/2011 (result using the Insert Current Date menu item)? If I am not mistaken, some prior versions of FM picked up the operating system formats for this function.

Thanks!
