Can Grapher display date/time characters in my language?

Yes, Grapher does support international date/time formats. Normally, the date/time format will use your Windows locale setting, by default. If the format is not correct, follow these steps to change the format to your desired language:


  1. Click on the date/time axis to select it.
  2. In the Property Manager, click on the Tick Labels tab.
  3. In the Major Labels section, click the + next to Format.
  4. Click the Select button next to Date/time format.
  5. Click the appropriate language in the Language (Country) list and click the Insert button. For instance, you might select German (Germany) - [$407].
  6. Select the appropriate Predefined date/time formats option and click Insert. For instance, you might select dd.MMM.yyyy.

Set the format, with the language identifier.

  1. Click OK and the date/time format is displayed on the axis in the set format.

The axis updates to show the desired format.
