Date format in note lists


fedor57

Idea

In note lists I have two columns "note created" and "note updated" in the following format

Thursday 20 October 2016 at 12:40

There are two problems:

- this is not good for eye scanning because all key fields like "day" and "time" are not aligned and in the middle of the string

- the note list is messy. Too much text near note titles. I would like to clean it up

Please consider using some format like we have in file lists in Finder/Windows explorer. E.g. "01 Dec 2014 20:29", those are well tested in UX labs. Or to provide a customization option. 

P.S. Note size is something to consider also. It's better to remove decimal part or to provide right aligned number of bytes with space separator between every 3 digits.

Thank you!

I don't use a Mac, but can't it be set up the same way I have my Windows setup?

The Created Date and the Updated Date for the year, month, and day align perfectly.  Single digit months and days have a zero added. So May (5) is actually (05). And the 3rd day (3) is actually (03).

Strangely, if you reduce the column width you see different formats
I'm seeing yyyy/mm/dd
