This has been previously reported and is also documented in a recent KnowledgeBase article.

This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.
It can also be downloaded as a database file from: http://www.4shared.com/file/8orL8apk/FMP_Bugs.html
This works OK for a few fields on one or two layouts, but not when one has a very large number to reformat. Until there is a fix, I will have to use the Windows version.
I'm not sure I follow what a "very large number" has to do with specifying the format for a date in a date field--which will be pretty much the same size number (in terms of digits) for every date in times near to the current date.
Perhaps you have encountered either a different bug or a different variation of the same bug?
Feel free to post a more detailed description of what you are dealing with so that I can properly update my databse and the accompanying thread here in Report an Issue.
