      Summary

      Bug in display of custom time format including GetAsText function

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13.0.5

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks)

      Description of the issue

      I customise all time and date formats, since none fits my needs (use of English language in Switzerland). I am using for hours 'h' (not default ':') and only to separate minutes from seconds ':'. However, FileMaker does not honour my system settings and uses 'h' for all separators. Ex.: 19h10:05 is then displayed as 19h10h05. This looks quite ugly and I ask you to fix this bug in the next version of FileMaker Pro Advanced. BTW, this bug was also present in FileMaker Pro Advanced 13.0.4.

      Thanks for your help and cooperation.

      Sincerely yours,
      Andreas Fischlin
