Formating "clock" on "Mate" panel 18.3

Post by malee » Sun Dec 31, 2017 8:33 pm

I want my clock to display Mon 1 Jan, xx:xx (time) FROM WHAT IS NOW - Mon Jan 1 xx:xx (time).

In the past (Prior to 18.3) one was able to go into the DCONF EDITOR - org/mate/panel/objects/clock/prefs/custom format but no longer - In my DCONF EDITOR this selection is bold and simple offers no option to change.

I cannot imagine it being hard coded to one countries date format - whilst not dangerous in this format as the month is described as a word and not a number - where it to be a number, it potentially is dangerous to a user. (I understand some do not have the capacity to see the danger, but it is there nonetheless)

Any help changing the format much appreciated.

Happy New year to those who celebrate with the gregorian calendar.

BTW, I do understand the danger involved . . . one person's 11-12-xxxx is another's 12-11-xxxx.
