Description Hedayat Vatankhah 2018-04-12 22:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
The Date column in an accounts data entry is completely useless. I cannot select today at all. With every click, it jumps to another year! Also, using -/+ buttons to go to prev/next day doesn't work! both of them decrease the year field.

Also, just clicking on a row will change its date!

Summary: it is completely useless!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run GnuCash

3. Go to an account and try to enter a new row

Open an account and select a row and see its date is modified

Actual results:

Tried with export LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8, and it worked fine.
The bug happens when LC_TIME=fa_IR.UTF-8 (and probably some other locales).

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2018-04-14 04:52:32 UTC
I've reproduced this, but only for Farsi so far - other RTL languages such as Hebrew and Arabic work.

Sent upstream https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795247.
